Detailed research into this highly-important and large Tang dynasty imperial sarcophagus constructed for the Zhenshun Empress in the shape of a building and bearing fine incised reliefs. The sarcophagus is regrettably famous as it was smuggled out of China to America and the Chinese government applied considerable pressure and effort for its return. This story is also told here. The sarcophagus is now safely in the collection of the Shaanxi History Museum in Xi'an. In Chinese.
