Jin state

After the Western Zhou Dynasty (c.11th century-771 BC) was founded, its kings granted conquered lands to their relatives, and those who contributed were given hereditary estates. One of the lands was known as Jin, which later progressed into a thriving and powerful state. Its prosperity lasted about six centuries until it was partitioned into three states, a result of its marquis losing power to his nobles. The rise and fall of Jin is reviewed at an exhibition at the Liaoning Provincial Museum through April 8. Titled Jin, a State of 600 Years, the exhibition shows nearly 600 artifacts to uncover one of the major states of the Zhou Dynasty (c.11th century-256 BC). It is a glimpse of the aristocratic structure, social attitudes and culture of the time in the Zhou empire up to the end of the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC).Objects at the exhibition are from the collection of the Shanxi Museum in Taiyuan, and are on show in Liaoning for the first time.

9 am-4:30 pm, until March 31;9 am-5 pm, from April 1.157 Zhihui Third Street, Hunnan district, Shenyang, Liaoning province. 024-2320-5102.
