Visitors to the Jinsha Site Museum in Chengdu, Sichuan province, were amused by a bronze object that served as a refrigerator more than 2,000 years ago.
Containing ice to cool wine in an inner container by a general in the Chu Kingdom whose center is in today’s Hubei province, it is one of 142 cultural relics from the Jiuliandun Tombs in Hubei which will be display in the Jinsha Site Museum from August 20 to October 30.
To prepare for the exhibition of the relics, workers are busy arranging exhibits in the Jinsha Site Museum.
Excavated in the city of Zaoyang in Hubei in 2002, the Jiuliandun Tombs consist of a tomb of a general and his wife, according to Wang Fang, an archaeologist and researcher with the Jinsha Site Museum.
