Explore the TombDesigned for the exhibition, the museum’s Tomb Treasures 3D Experience enables visitors to explore a 3D model of Tomb 1 at Dayun Mountain, the tomb of Liu Fei, king of Jiangdu (153-128 BCE). Assembled using photography and reference material provided by the Nanjing Museum, the Tomb Treasures 3D Experience begins with an aerial view of a reconstructed Han Dynasty Royal Mausoleum; the burial mound is lifted to reveal inside tombs 1 and 2. Visitors can explore 12 different areas of tomb 1, where different objects were discovered. The Tomb Treasures 3D Experience is currently available onsite in the exhibition and online at tombtreasures.asianart.org.
