From:China Daily  Writer:  Date:2018-02-02
An exhibition themed on the Maritime Silk Road and exquisite mirrors opened at the Museum of Xi’an Tang Imperial City Hangguang Entrance Remains in Xi’an, capital of Northwest China’s Shaanxi province, Jan 31, 2017.

Through comparison of 79 Japanese mirrors and 11 Chinese traditional bronze mirrors, the exhibit shows part of the history when Chinese traditional bronze mirrors were shipped to Japan through the Maritime Silk Road in the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 24).

The antique mirrors on display reflect how Chinese traditional cultures were passed to foreign countries through the Silk Road, which promoted the cultural exchanges and prosperity.
