CDR-1185: SR Set: The Art of China (including Korea)

The breadth of Chinese history and culture is illustrated here with examples of architecture, landscape design, sculpture, ceramics, painting, furniture, manuscripts and urbanism. These images compare the proud Terracotta Qin Warriors with urban scenes of modern Chinese life, and contrast the monumental Great Wall and elegant temples with panoramas of the contemporary high rises of today’s Shanghai. 10/08 Please note: Academic Image Sets are offered to show the breadth of our collections. You do not need to order an entire set; you can also order individual images from each Set.
