An Inhale of Fragrance, an ongoing exhibition at Shanxi Museum until May 9, navigates the long-standing relationship between ancient Chinese and incense.

It shows major woods and plants of pleasant aroma which have been considered as precious and sacred throughout centuries. Also, it reviews the development of incense burners as examples of the evolutions in economy, lifestyle, religion, arts and crafts, showing famed censers in history such as the Boshan burners of the Han Dynasty (202 BC-AD 220) and Xuande burners of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).
