Catalogue of an exhibition held at the Ordos Bronze Museum in Inner Mongolia, China, exploring the history and culture of the Inner Mongolia region with particular reference to trade links and the Silk Road. Museums throughout Inner Mongolia lent many fine and unusual objects, some rarely, if ever, shown before. The exhibits dated from the Shang dynasty through to the Yuan with good amounts of Warring States material - the time the 'Ordos' and other steppe cultures flourished - and much Yuan material. A few later pieces. Ordos-style small bronzes and gold items were particular highlights. Illustrated throughout in colour. Text in Chinese.
