Han Carved Stone from Tengzhou, China

This event is hosted by the Center for Chinese Art at William Paterson University, New York Gallery of Chinese Art co-organized with China Institute of Han Dynasty’s Art, Bureau of Cultural Heritage of Shandong Province,Bureau of Culture, Radio, Television and Media of Zaozhuang City, Bureau of Cultural Heritage of Zaozhuang City,Bureau of Culture, Radio, Television and Media of Tengzhou City,and Tengzhou Museum of Han Carved Stones, China.

 

Throughout 206BC to 220AD, the Han Dynasty produced remarkable Han Carved Stones adorned with gorgeous reliefs. From underground tombs (also known as hypogea) to the entrances of cemetery temples, these stones served as the building blocks to showcasing the life of the Han people. The art depicted on the stones not only represents the peak of ancient Chinese art of the pre-Han period, but also casts a profound influence on Chinese art after the Han Dynasty, marking a crucial point in its history. The rubbings from these stones give us an opportunity to study the economy, culture, art, and many other domains during the Han Dynasty, providing a glimpse of what society was like long ago. In order to better understand the art of the 55 stone rubbings from the Tengzhou Museum of Han Carved Stones’ collection, we are pleased to invite experts from museums across China to help us share the treasures of Eastern art.
