A real treat to visit an exhibition of art from the Ming dynasty. As children we used to play a board game about becoming collectors of design icons. It included Picasso paintings and expensive sports cars. I have no idea what it was called. The ultimate item was a Ming vase and here I found myself in a gallery surrounded by them. My pick for my fantasy collection was this blue and white one with the most beautiful pattern. It dates from the end of the 16th century (photo is my own).
