Riassunto: Four thousand years ago, a remarkable culture emerged in the Eastern Eurasian steppes north of the Great Wall of China, in what is now Inner Mongolia. Herding, hunting on horseback, and agriculture characterized the way of life for the pastoral nomads of this region, and the art they produced reflects the equestrian culture that evolved over the centuries. Lightweight and portable, the weapons, bronze and gold belt plaques and chariot fittings, and objects of personal adornment display skilled craftsmanship and highly-abstract designs, featuring animals, both wild and domesticated - tigers, bears, ibex, horses, camels - as well as raptors, dragons, and other mythical creatures. Trade, intermarriage and warfare between the nomadic peoples and their settled Chinese neighbours during the first millennium BC led to a complex interrelationship that contributed to the cultural development of both groups. This text examines the artistic exchange between them and chronicles the culture of the pastoral peoples by focusing on nearly 200 artefacts from the distinguished collection of Eugene V. Thaw, with additional works selected from other private collections and from The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Sinossi: A number of artefacts from Northern China and Mongolia were recently acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a generous gift of Eugene V Thaw a long-time art dealer and collector. This book accompanies an exhibition held at the museum from 2002-2003 of these, and other artefacts, dating largely from the first millennium BC. Four short essays present the background to the land and people, to the types of artefacts within the collection and the legacy of the people of the Eurasian steppes. The main body of the book includes a catalogue of artefacts arranged by object type accompanied by colour photographs.
