Welcome to China

created by Peggy McKee, January 1999 - April 2014

Students in C&C may go on a virtual tour of a virtual
Chinese art gallery to glimpse of some of the
great contributions of Chinese artists and craftsmen
over the broad scope of Chinese history,
from bronze funerary vessels of the Shang Dynasty to the exquisite porcelains of the
Qing Dynasty. While these pages barely scratch the surface of the breadth
and depth of China's contributions, they do convey the rich diversity
of that cultural heritage.
