Museum of the Western Han Dynasty Mausoleum of the Nanyue King

Five jade dancing figures are excavated in the tomb of the Nanyue king. They are precious evidence which can facilitate research on music and dancing in the Han Dynasty. They are very common among the tombs of Han Dynasty feudal princes, but mostly are in flat shape. These five circular-carved jade figures are the first time to be seen in a Han Dynasty feudal princeÕs tomb.
