- from Ancient China
Chinese society has faced great changes since the last emperor lost his throne in 1912. But evidence of ancient China is everywhere in the modern world.
Chinese cooking, medicine, and exercise contain elements thousands of years old. The paintings and pottery done by artists of the past inspire young artists today. Two of the world’s great belief systems began in China. They are Confucianism and Daoism. The ideas of their founders have had an impact on everything from politics to cooking to martial arts.
