An exhibition at the Shandong Museum in Jinan, Shandong province, is displaying well-preserved garments of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The exhibition features clothes worn on the occasions of royal activities, meeting guests and ordinary daily life.

The garments were handed down from generation to generation. They didn’t go through procedures of being buried underground and then unearthed, so they have maintained their original colors, said Yu Qin of the museum.

The collection also comes from the Confucius Museum in the province's Qufu, the birthplace of Confucius.

The exhibition will last until Nov 29.
