The Politics Behind the Chinese Exhibition in Prague (PHOTOS)

The beautiful and renowned Prague Castle in the Czech Republic is currently exhibiting the "Treasures of Ancient China" -- including two statues of warriors from the Terracotta Army. There are over 90 exhibited objects that show the development of China over 5,000 years, starting with the Neolithic period and going through the very last ruling dynasty. The pieces for the exhibition come from several different museums in China that loaned them out for the exhibition, which opened Aug. 8 and will run through Nov. 9.

I attended the exhibition and found the art breathtaking and the history fascinating. However, recent developments in Chinese-Czech relations are even more interesting than ancient artifacts.
