Qin and Han Dynasty Seals
大印

The museum contains a full range of personal seals from the Qin and Han dynasties and well as seals from the country level. I have included just a couple here because they all look pretty much alike.

Among the personal seals the museums collection includes: Sima Xie, Su Duan, Huan Duan, Shangguan You from the Qin dynasty and Chen Dong, Du Shi Jia Yin, You Zong Zhi Yin, Nie Hua, and Xiahou Xi of the Han dynasty.

The collection includes items from the Qin dynasty counties east of the Hangguan Pass. There is a further group from the Guanzhong region of the Qin dynasty. The seals provide information about the local demarkation of counties and townships under the Qin and other dynasties.
