The Asian Art Museum’s director, Jay Xu (who curated the show with his colleague Fan Jeremy Zhang), points out that these objects reflect life in the dynasty as well as the royal residents’ expected afterlife. “In Han royal tombs the deceased are laid out in splendid coffins in underground rooms,” Xu says in a catalog essay.
