Power and Glory was the first major exhibition to focus solely on the court arts of the Ming dynasty. Some of the objects in the exhibition were from newly excavated tombs of individuals related to the Ming court and had never been shown before outside of China. The exhibition was comprised of more than 200 items that include paintings; gold and jade; textiles; jewelry; architectural and funereal objects; carvings and lacquer pieces; porcelains; and enamel and metal work. The exhibition ran at the Indianapolis Museum of Art October 26, 2008-January 11, 2009.
