National Museum of China Exhibition from Dec 16, 2011- Jan 16, 2012
Xinjiang is located at the northwest border of China. It is the land of migration as well as a crossroad between China and other civilizations. During the thousands of years’ historical development, people live on this land continuously absorb cultural elements from other nations and create the splendid multinational culture with regional characteristics. This exhibition showcases close to one hundred costumes collected from Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region Museum, including simple and traditional woolens during pre-Qin dynasty, gorgeous silks and cotton dresses during the Han and the Jin dynasties, soft and colorful garments during the Sui and the Tang dynasties and folk costumes from the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties. These costumes reveal the blending of different nations in Xinjiang and its multicultural developments through continuous innovation.
