Jadeite Cabbage, a piece of Jadeite carved to look like cabbage, and the meat-shaped stone, cut to look like a piece of pork cooked in soy sauce. Sure enough, the exhibit room for these two celebrity pieces is packed with museum visitors.
We admire this food art for a suitable length of time, then head down to a much more fascinating exhibit: The Tibetan Dragon Sutra: the Great Treasury of Buddhist Scriptures in the National Palace Museum. Handwritten in gold ink on cobalt-blue stationery, these manuscripts from the 17th century are stunning.
These impressive manuscripts put us in a library frame of mind. So we end our visit at the National Palace Museum library building.
Yours in saving the best for last,
