3014Re:Chinese museum online
- Oct 22, 2009Gary, thank you so much for posting this site! I've written a novel using certain scenes from "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" and visual references are hard to come by from that distant of a time period. (I still hope to find ship recreations of the vessels used at Chibi, so if you know of any pictures of ships like that, I'd be in your debt again.) I hope to do at least two more novels using Wang Mang and Su Tungpo in the future, so your site is a reference gold mine. :D

I have about 5000 photos posted now, but after I return to China tomorrow, I plan to buy more storage space and post a few thousand more photos. Then I plan to go to Shanghai in a few weeks and add hundreds of photos from the excellent museum there. Then in August I intend to photograph the refurbished PLA (Military) Museum in Beijing, while I also take advantage of free tickets to the Olympics. Throughout next year I will visit more museums as I find the time, and add them to the website. I also have photos from other places like Egypt, Rome, and Mesoamerica, but those are mostly monumental artifacts, and not the kinds you find in museums. Also, those were taken with a slide camera and rephotographed with a digital. The quality is not always so good.
