The museum we were going to visit is Liuli Museum. Liuli is a special type of glossing on the pottery during the ancient times. They are typically used during roof tile-making. The yellow roof tiles used in the Forbidden City have gone through this process.

After he passed away, they made a mask out of his face, took out 20 mustache hairs and stuck into the mask. That was all he left of his body on this earth.
