- from Ancient China
Although Chinese society has faced great changes since the last emperor lost his throne in 1912, 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 of the artists of the past inspire the young artists of today. Two of the world’s great belief systems—Confucianism and Daoism—began in China. The ideas of their founders have had an impact on everything—from politics to cooking to martial arts.
