        Be the Historian: How do images function as symbols?

        In this exercise you will examine this portrait from China’s Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The portrait is full of symbols that carried meaning for the people viewing it when it was created, and for historians who have cracked the meaning of the symbols. Use a historian’s explanation of the symbols to try to determine the historical significance of the portrait.
