Why this is a
Masterpiece

This painting shows two children playing a chasing game on the grass. There is a pinch of hair on the foreheads of the two boys, both of which are bare at the upper part of their bodies. They wear long silk trousers with coloured belts and red boots. On the left, the kid raises his right hand high as if he sets insects free. He holds a dog with black and white curly hair in his left hand. On the right, the boy is staring at something as if he tries to draw his mate’s attention with a worrying look. It is a beautiful work of art.

History of the Object
The tombs are located to the Southeast of Turpan city close to the ancient City of Gaochang. The tombs were the public cemetery of the ancient Gaochang residents. Among the more than ten thousand cultural relics excavated are over 2700 books, paintings, pottery, silk and cotton textiles. The time recorded in the books ranges from 273 to 772.
