This book is the catalogue of the exhibition, “The Silk Road in Inner Mongolia”, held by The University Museum and Art Gallery of The University of Hong Kong and the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region Museum. In this exhibition, eighty extraordinary artefacts dating from the Tang (618–907) to the Yuan (1271–1368) dynasties, including porcelain, glass, gold and silver wares, harnesses and Nestorian Christian items are on view. The Silk Road of China’s northern steppes documents the rise and fall of nomadic tribes, and the relationship, interaction and cultural influences between these tribes and the West. Their arts are not only characterised by their own cultural features, but also by blending the ideas and styles of the West. This illustrates the cultural diversity and uniqueness of China.
