Online access to Tang Dynasty art classics

SOME OF THE GREATEST classic art in the region came from the Tang Dynasty — extraordinary murals, capturing life more than a thousand years ago. Click here to join a virtual journey which takes you back in time into the heart of Chang’an, the biggest city in the world at that time.

The video will take you above the Qianling Mausoleum northwest of Chang’an, the site of some of the most famous murals.

Good news: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a key exhibition about the period has been extended.

“A Glimpse of Tang Prosperity from Murals – The Exhibition Tour on Murals of the Tang Dynasty” – in The Indra and Harry Banga Gallery at City University of Hong Kong will now be shown until June 12 this year.
