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.

本書為道出物外:中國北方草原絲綢之路展覽的圖錄。是次展覽由香港大學美術博物館與內蒙古自治區博物館聯合舉辦,展出80件唐代至元代的珍貴文物,包括瓷器、玻璃、金銀器、馬具及景教文物。中國北方草原絲綢之路反映了數千年來,居住在草原上遊牧民族的興衰,以及他們與周邊民族的關係,相互影響及交流過程。他們創製的器物,除帶有濃厚的北方民族色彩外,同時融合了中西方的風格和特色,反映了中國文化多元與獨特的一面。
