In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the excavation of a wrecked medieval merchant ship off the Sinan Coast, this exhibition illuminates the historic significance of the sunken relics found here and the diverse cultural exchanges that took place through the sea routes of East Asia in the fourteenth century. The works on display will include these relics from Sinan, as well as related cultural properties on loan from museums in China and Japan.
