More than 400,000 cultural relics are housed in the Nanjing Museum, arranged by date from the 11th century BC up to the founding of the People's Republic in 1949. One of the most interesting exhibits is a burial suit made of 2,600 small rectangles of jade sewn together with silver thread. Discovered in the city of Xuzhou in 1970, the suit is thought to be over 1,800 years old. There is also a large wooden copy of a statue of a man with all the acupuncture points marked on his body, the original bronze version of which dates back to the Warring States period (475-221BC). Other items include elaborately embroidered sedan chairs, artifacts from the Taiping Rebellion and beautiful bronze, jade and porcelain pieces.
