Ming 50 Years That Changed China

From 18th September 2014 to 5th January 2015, an exhibition was held at the British Museum. It was called "Ming 50 Years That Changed China" and consisted of exhibits from the British Museum and items on loan from ten museums in China and elsewhere. All items date from the Ming dynasty years 1400 to 1450, a time of peace when the capital moved to Beijing. Some of the items displayed featured Go.

  • A large blue and white vase with two ladies seated at table in a room playing Go.
  • A paper folding Go board with crude wooden bowls. Three stones placed on the board for illustration purposes.
