To See a World in a Grain of Sand: Ancient Maritime and Overland trade

Maritime Museum
Central Pier No. 8,
Hong Kong, Hong Kong
May 17, 2017 To Jun 30, 2017


Detail: 'To See a world in a Grain of Sand’ is an exhibition that uses a small number of objects to communicate about the extensive maritime and overland trade routes of the past. Sand is an interesting metaphor for the land and sea trade which characterised the ancient Silk Road. The objects chosen for this exhibition highlight key themes around the circulation of commodities, people and ideas across the Silk Road over time.
