Scholar and Sinolophile Frank Aon digs deep into the wonders of Shang dynasty jade sculpture, including its symbolism and the relation to the early animist belief systems of that ancient time three millennia ago in China. He will be our guide to the dramatic archaeological finds of Qin Sha and Tsin Sha Tsui. Aon is a material scientist at Orenda Lab in New Mexico, working in the fields of geology, mineralogy and metallurgy.
