Exhibit of Chinese Art
Porcelains, bronzes, wood carvings, jade, fine embroideries and basketry -- the property of Rev. Huang Tien Min, a native Chinese missionary, who is now studying for his degree at DePauw University. All of the objects, with the exception of the baskets, are antiques, and one piece, a porcelain god, and seemingly one of the best preserved of the collection, dates back to the Tang dynasty, probably to the year 900.
The baskets were made in Hing-Hua, Mr. Huang's native city, in the interior of South China. The art of making them was taught about thirty years ago to its people by the foreign missionaries.
