Description
Twelve centuries ago, a merchant ship—an Arab dhow—foundered on a reef off the coast of Belitung in the Java Sea. On board were lead ingots, bronze mirrors, spice jars, intricately worked vessels of silver and gold, and more than 60,000 glazed bowls, ewers, and other ceramics. Entombed in the silty sea floor, the ship and its cargo were rediscovered in 1998, revealing both the oldest Arab vessel known in Asian waters and the largest group of Tang dynasty artifacts ever found. This exhibit catalogue, with 220 color and 235 black and white illustrations and 11 essays by international experts, considers the ship and the men who sailed it as well as the cargo, its production, and its possible destinations.
