Jade shroud

Gold seal

With a history of up to 2100 years, the Nanyue King's Tomb is the earliest large-scale painted stone-chamber tomb ever found in south. It is one of China's five greatest archeological findings in recent years. The tomb belongs to King Zhao Mei, successor of his grandfather Zhao Tuo, the first Nanyue King. His body, dressed in jade shroud, was buried along with 15 sacrificial people and more than 1000 pieces of exquisite jade and bronze adornments.
