A priceless treasure trove of Chinese art will give a silver lining to Liverpool’s Capital of Culture celebrations in 2008.
Hundreds of glittering exhibits from the legendary Forbidden City will provide a direct link between Liverpool and Beijing, which is hosting the Olympic Games the same year.
The show is described as the best display of Chinese art ever seen in the UK and also celebrates Liverpool as home to Europe’s oldest Chinese community.
The six-month show will reveal life behind the scenes in China’s historic imperial palace.
The exhibits include Buddhas, temple hangings, armour, weapons, clothing, personal jewellery, ornaments and musical instruments.
