Photographer's Note

Nanyue King Museum - Mausoleum is the oldest and largest Han tomb with the most funerary objects in southern China.
Highlight of this mausoleum is a silk-jade garment made up of 2,291 pieces of jade.This garment with jade pieces connected by silk is the only one of its kind in the world.
Foreign articles excavated in the mausoleum indicate that Guangzhou was an ancient Marine Silk Road starting point. For example, there are five African elephant trunks, a silver box formed in Western Asia and bronze incense burners from Southeast Asia.
A museum is very interesting for foreign vistors (like me), which are not so much familiar with the Chinese acient culture. Also moderm architecture of the museum is very nice and interesting, glass pyramide over the tomb reflects nicely the sky.
