Exhibition: Heavenly Crafted: Selected Mughal Jades from the Palace Museum, Art Museum
 

Thanks to a generous loan from the Palace Museum in Beijing, the Art Museum is holding this special exhibition of 40 extraordinary pieces from the 400 Mughal jades in the collection. This will be the first exhibition of its kind to be held in Hong Kong or mainland China, and most of the pieces have never been exhibited or published before. The exhibition reveals the artistic achievement of Mughal jades, their origins, the mutual influences of jade carving in Central Asia and China, and the characteristics of Qing Dynasty jades in the Mughal style.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Friends of the Art Museum, CUHK. Highlights of the exhibition are listed below.
