Pieces that represent more than 2,000 years of Chinese porcelain history are on display at the Zhejiang Provincial Museum. Focused on the "maritme porcelain road," the ongoing exhibit presents 185 examples of precious porcelain created and exported during the centuries spanning the ancient Han Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty, which ended in 1911. The pieces were borrowed from the Macao Museum, Guangdong Museum and Hong Kong Museum of Art. The exhibition also showcases China's influence on the development of arts and crafts in Asian and European countries.
