Curated by authorities from the Shanghai Museum, Ancient Arts of China portrays the evolution of 5,000 years of Chinese technology, art and culture. The Gold of Troy features 20 pieces of fine women's jewelry exemplary of ancient Trojan craftsmanship. Their age and style indicate they were likely discovered at Troy, home of the most famous treasure ever unearthed.
