Flows of people, objects and knowledge went back and forth between Europe and China across centuries, and are witnessed by a wealth of China-related cultural heritage preserved in European Institutions.
Discover the interesting stories that are told in digitized collections available on Europeana, carefully curated and selected by the Editorial Team of EU funded PAGODE – Europeana China project.
Today’s gallery is about “Jewelry with a Chinese twist“: Chinese jewelry can be immensely intricate and richly decorated. Enjoy this treasure trove of earrings, bracelets, necklaces and headdresses boasting pearls, precious stones, and even kingfisher feathers.
