Sunday, April 22nd @ 2 PM
Terra-cotta warriors, bronze chariots and horses are among the iconic artifacts of China’s first imperial dynasty, the Qin (221–206 BCE). New research suggests the material culture and social governance of the Qin may not be solely indigenous Chinese, and that influences from the west may have come through Central Asian trade routes.
Presented at the Fowler Museum in partnership with the UCLA Cotsen Institute for Archaeology, UCLA Department of Ethnomusicology, Boethius Initiative, and the UCLA Confucius Institute.
This program is part of Visioning Dunhuang, a multi-year exploration of two millennia of creative and spiritual cross-cultural exchange along Afro-Eurasian trade routes, newly reﬂected in globalized contemporary Los Angeles.
