Thousands of precious objects have been placed in the tombs of ancient China. Archeology reveals the splendor of these offerings and lets us imagine that of the rituals that accompanied them.

Monday March 30, 2020. 6.30pm at the Old College Buddhist art across Asia. Having left India in the 6th century BC, Buddhism gradually spread to the Far East. By aggregating with different cultures it has given rise to very varied representations of the Buddha.

Japan of the Edo period: Prints and decorative arts. The Edo period (1615-1868) is one of the most brilliant in Japanese history.

It is the golden age of the precious arts and especially that of the print practiced by the masters of Ukiyo-e. Free admission
