Located in Cincinnati, the Taft Museum contains a number of Chinese ceramics in its collection that have special significance for Qing dynasty (1644–1911) martial traditions. There is a porcelain statue of the God of War, Guangdi. Five vases and a lantern are of special significance for their military themes, probably used for political propaganda.
