Other rare exhibits include one dress of the Hani Nationality which is decorated with ornaments made in 1819, and 350-year-old necklaces and head ornaments for a princess of the Dai Nationality.
The event is organized by the State Ethnic Affairs Commission and Yunnan Provincial People's Government.
