A Chinese porcelain piggy bank from the Tang Dynasty (618-907) was donated to Hunan Museum by Wu Yuejian, China's No. 1 collector of Changsha Kiln artifacts, and his daughter Wu Shan on Jan. 8, 2018. The well-preserved brown money box, which was produced at an ancient kiln in Changsha, the capital city of Hunan Province, is engraved with inscriptions shedding light on the history of Daolin Temple and development of Buddhist culture in the city.
