Detail of a mural from an Eastern Han (25-220 AD) tomb at Zhucun 朱村, Luoyang 洛陽, Henan province.
The two figures in the foreground are playing Liubo, with the playing mat between them, and the Liubo board to the side of the mat. The two red, circular objects next to the liubo board are probably intended to represent lacquer wine cups. The player on the right is taking his turn, with his right hand raised up as if about to throw down the six throwing sticks.

Paragons of filial piety, Chinese painted artwork on a lacquered basketwork box. It was excavated from an Eastern Han tomb of what was the Chinese Lelang Commandery in what is now North Korea. Each of the figures are about 5 cm tall. It is now located at the National Museum of Seoul. The photograph is black-and-white, so the various lacquer-based colors of paint do not show.
