About the event

 An exciting new exhibition, Treasures of China, launched at the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) in Doha today, and will run from 7th September 2016 – 7th January 2017.

Visitors will get the chance to see treasures from China’s legendary civilization and meet the terracotta soldiers who guarded a hidden underground empire. The world-famous terracotta warriors from the First Emperor’s Terracotta Army are on show as part of the exhibition, transporting visitors on a unique journey back in time to explore the glorious history and heritage of China spanning five thousand years.

Divided into three parts: “The Birth of Civilisation, Ceremonies and Kingdoms”, “Splendid Unification, Prosperity and the Silk Road” and “Porcelain, Imperial China and the Royal Arts,” the exhibition involves all major historical periods of ancient China and displays 116 pieces dating from the Neolithic period to the Qing Dynasty, taking audiences on an unforgettable journey through China’s past.

Vivid pottery, bronzes, jades, porcelain, gold, silver, enamel and many other exquisite Chinese treasures are on show, selected from five museums and heritage institutions from across China, providing the ideal showcase for Chinese creativity and craftsmanship. Aimed at reflecting the integration between the cultures of the East and the West, the exhibition offers visitors an opportunity to appreciate, embrace and discover the profundity and richness of Chinese culture and traditions from a number of perspectives.

The exhibition is on display in MIA’s Special Exhibitions Gallery where entry is free of charge, and will run from 7th September 2016 – 7th January 2017.
