The ship, which was discovered after more than a millennium, depicts the grandeur of the maritime trade between the East and the West in the 9th century.

Aside from the 168 objects carefully selected from the collection of the Singapore museum, including rarities such as blue-and-white dishes, the legendary Jiangxin mirror, green splashed white wares, as well as gold and silver wares, visitors will also get to see various objects unearthed or circulated across generations in China. The exhibition is designed to offer a panoramic insight into Tang lifestyles and maritime trade in the 9th century.
