Tending the Afterlife: Chinese Tomb Art from the Neolithic Period to the Ming Dynasty "showcases a spectacular selection of objects from the permanent collection of the Crow Collection of Asian Art and works on loan from the Collection of Penn and Margarida Williamson in Houston and the Collection of John L. and Rosemarie in San Antonio. Covering almost six millennia of Chinese visual culture—from the Neolithic period (c. 10,000 B.C.–c.1600 B.C.)to the Ming dynasty (1368–1644)—these objects represent the artistic creativity and technical virtuosity achieved by the Chinese artisans."
