The MGM Collection of Imperial Carpets
For its permanent art collection, MGM Cotai acquired 28 imperial carpets that date back to the Qing Dynasty in the 18th and 19th centuries. Exhibited in Asia for the very first time, these rare relics once decorated the halls of the Forbidden City, and are a testament to the exquisite craftsmenship that existed in Imperial China. The knotted carpets feature intricate designs and are made from valuable materials such as silk and precious metals. A great example is the Dragon of Heaven – a carpet from the Qianlong period that’s adorned with dragons, flowers and clouds spun from silk and gilded copper threads.
