Catalogue of an exhibition at the Capital Museum in Beijing. The Liao kingdom in northern China was divided into five circuits each with its own 'capital' city. This exhibition therefore encompasses the entire Liao kingdom. Major loans from museums and institutions in Inner Mongolia and Northeast China made this an impressive showing. The majority of the exhibits comprised fine gold objects from tombs, ceramics and small bronzes plus a few textile fragments and wooden objects. Illustrated throughout. Text in Chinese.
