Photographer's Note

The Nanjing Museum has a marvelous collection, one of its most famous itens is the man of jade. The piece was created during Western Han Dynasty (AD 25-AS 220). In that time the emperors and princes were buried with this armor made of pieces of jade and with silver threads and silk. They thought this would preserve their body for the spiritual life.

O Museu de Nanquim tem um acervo magnífico, entre as peças mais famosas está o Homem de Jade. A peça data da dinastia Han Ocidental (do ano 25 ao ano 220). Naquele tempo os imperadores e príncipes eram enterrados usando essa armadura feita de plaquinhas de jade costuradas com fios de prata e seda. Eles achavam que isso protegeria o corpo para a vida espiritual.
