Twenty-five sets of carved bricks originating from the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D. 220) are on display at OCT Eco Plaza until March 1.

These carved bricks are housed in museums in Shandong, Anhui and Jiangsu provinces. They were once used to decorate imperial palaces, ancestral halls and tombs, and are like an encyclopedia of ancient Chinese society. The images they depict range from mythical dragons and phoenixes, to animals and plants and scenes of everyday life.

Not all the patterns on these bricks depict Han Dynasty life. Many are rather mysterious. One brick, for example, shows hunters in clothes that resemble those worn by ancient Persians. Another depicts girls dressed in long flared skirts, typical of 18th-century Europe.

Dates: Until March 1

Hours: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Venue: Daken Art Center, B107, OCT Ecology Plaza, Qiaocheng Street West

Metro: Luobao Line, OCT Station,Exit B(Cao Zhen)
