Living on the "roof of the world" and at the foot of the snow mountains, the Tibetan people in the Tibet Autonomous Region have created splendid culture and arts, including a sea of rare cultural relics, with unique ethnic style from generation to generation.

The pottery pot unearthed in Karuo, Qamdo Prefecture, was a rare relic in the New stone Age (BC3000). It was made up of yellow clay and microsand. Its surface was decorated with cutting strokes and black painting, and its body is in the shape of two beasts standing in opposite.

The precious helmet, which was believed to be a fighting helmet used by Srong-brtsan-sgam-po in 700, is kept in the Yingwu Palace of the Palace Museum in Beijing. Srong-brtsan-sgam-po was the founder of the Tubo Realm (ancient Tibet). In 641, he married Princess Wencheng of Tang Dynasty and learned the advanced feudal culture from the Central Plains consisting the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River thus strengthening the ties between people of all ethnic groups on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and in the interior land.

The moving Chart of Celestial Body (Qing Dynasty) was a traditional Tibetan painting-Tangkha, a kind of scroll painting typical of the Tibetan style. The painting is 157 cm long and 138 cm wide and stored in the Potala Palace in Lhasa. According to the record of "Bai Liu Li," the chart of the moving sun, the moon and stars can accurately tell the Tibetan calendar, and has been used in the Tibetan calendar. This has reflected the level of Tibetan people to observe the stars, and is an important relic in the study of the modern astronomy calendar.

Pearl Mandala is translated from the sound of the word from Sanskrit, which means altar. It is the place for Buddhists to study doctrine. To memorize the 13th Dalai Lama (1875-1933), the experienced and skillful workers of Tibet stringed the round corals. It is very precious and has been preserved in the Potala Palace.
