An exhibition featuring traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) cultural relics kicked off in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, on Friday.
More than 300 sets of exhibits, including ancient tortoise shells, medical operation tools, prescriptions, medical books dating back to the second millennium BC, were showcased at the exhibition. Nearly 100 of the exhibits are first-class cultural relics in China.
A bronze bridge-shape seal, the first-class cultural relic of the Eastern Han Dynasty (25–220 AD) provided by the Palace Museum, is the earliest doctor’s seal currently known. It may belongs to Guo Yu, a famous doctor from Sichuan in the Eastern Han Dynasty.
The Tianhui medical bamboo slips unearthed from the No. 3 Han Dynasty Tomb at Laoguanshan, Tianhui Town, Chnegdu, also made their debut at the exhibition.
