... calligraphy, bamboo fans of various sorts, furniture from the 1900s, silk embroidery, ivory and bone carving (and we think that ivory carving may still be going on here - couldn't get a straight answer to the questions - can't be taken out of the country without permission from the government) and clay figures from Mao's time with lots of Communist themes but really well worked - faces on figures very expressive.
