Description: Four thousand years ago, a remarkable culture emerged in what is now Inner Mongolia. Focused on hunting and herding, especially from horseback, these nomadic people produced stunning, intricate art objects. This is the first major volume devoted to the small yet sumptuous pieces that reflect the beliefs and clan affiliations of the ancient people of the Northern Zone.

Lavish color illustrations reproduce exquisite belt plaques and buckles, glittering appliques, short swords and curved knives, horse accoutrements, and chariot and cart fittings decorated with motifs featuring birds of prey, wild animals -- tigers, boar, deer, and ibex -- and domestic animals such as camels, horses, donkeys, and yaks.

An up-to-date account of Chinese excavations in the area, based on work by WU EN, deputy director of the Archaeological Institute, Beijing, is amplified by diagrams and photographs of recently opened tombs, full metallurgical analyses, and a useful appendix of forgeries.
