Stories from the East: The Grice Ivories
Discover a spellbinding world of myth and legend as some of the UK’s finest examples of Chinese craftsmanship go on show at Weston Park Museum this spring.
This is the largest display of these remarkable hand-carvings in over 15 years and will look at the tales, figures and traditions that inspired them. This exhibition will also explore how Dr John Grice’s extraordinary collection of ivories came to Sheffield in the 1930s, as well as the history and impact of the ivory trade.
