This talk will be divided into two parts. The first part will give two case studies of material exchange in Eurasia during the first millennium B.C. In the second part the implications of these examples of material exchange for the study of Chinese art will be given, using illustrations mainly from later Chinese art, after the introduction of Buddhism into China at the end of the Han dynasty to the early Qing dynasty.
