展覽亮點介紹

「王陵瑰寶」將在博物館一層的特別展廳(Osher、Lee、Hambrecht)內展出160件珍貴文物,全場展品均首次在美亮相。
The exhibition explores three main themes:

Everlasting Happiness Without End (長樂未央)
Learn about the daily life and courtly entertainment of the Han nobility. 

Eternal Life Without Limit (長生無極)
Explore ancient ideas about the afterlife. 

Enduring Remembrance Without Fail (長毋相忘)
Discover the Han elite’s preoccupation with hygiene, beauty and intimate relations. 

You’ll also discover Han burial practices involving jade, believed to have magical properties to preserve the body. Some of the finest examples unearthed to date are on view in Tomb Treasures, including a jade coffin and body suit sewn with gold thread, a particularly rare find.

展覽分為三個主題:

長樂未央
貴族生活和宮廷娛樂。觀眾可了解漢代貴族的日常生活、祭祀、飲食及娛樂,並體驗宮廷音樂和舞蹈。 Osher展廳主要展出漢代貴族日常享受的奢華生活、先進的工藝技術、和宮廷內精美的裝飾。

長生無極
玉石崇拜和追求永生。觀眾可體驗陵墓的氛圍,探索古人對後世的理解和想像。Hambrecht展廳內展品包括三件玉質絕世瑰寶:金縷玉衣、鑲玉漆棺、及漆棺上的龍型玉雕。

長毋相忘
宮廷內的私密生活。觀眾可窺探深宮內的起居生活及貴族男女的隱密世界。Lee展廳內的展品有明器也有日常使用過的器皿。通過展示這些精巧物件,其中包括洗漱用品、鏡子、盆池、香爐、及銅祖,希望觀眾願意進一步去探索漢代後宮的秘密。

這個展覽中充分的呈現出漢代文化中對玉石的無限崇拜和敬仰。漢人相信凝聚天地之精華的美玉具有神奇功能,可以保證屍體不腐化。「王陵瑰寶」展出的鑲玉漆棺與金縷玉衣不僅罕見,而是漢代考古發現的最精美與完整的典型範例。
