In recent decades, archaeological excavations across northern China have brought to light many items of extraordinary beauty and significance. Several of these were seen in the West for the first time in an exhibition at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts. This catalogue illustrates a range of these stone carvings, ceramic figures and wall paintings, charts their discovery, and explains their importance to our understanding of Chinese cultures from the 5th to the 11th centuries CE.
