University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

One of the newest acquisitions in the Asian Section is a collection of ethnographic textiles from the former Philadelphia Civic Center Museum. Originally exhibited at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, the approximately 400 pieces entered the Museum and expanded the range of the textile collection to include South China, Indochina, and Vietnam. Some of the cultures represented in the series include the Miao, Akha, Li, Lahu, Yao, Lolo, and Yi people. These nicely compliment our more modern pieces collected in the late 20th century.
