A visitor looks at celadon creations that date back to the Northern Song Dynasty (A.D. 960-1127) at the Palace Museum in Taipei, southeast China's Taiwan, June 13, 2011. Taipei's Palace Museum, founded in 1965, boasts a rich collection of exquisite artifacts spanning 5,000 years from the Neolithic period to the Qing Dynasty. Most of its exhibits were removed from the Beijing Palace Museum in the 1930s during the anti-Japanese war (1937-1945) and were later taken to Taiwan by the fugitive Kuomintang forces as they were defeated during a civil war in the late 1940s.
