The Shang dynasty inscribed oracle bones were found at Yinxu, Henan province. Its purpose and function shed significant light on the origin of Chinese culture, disclosing major concerns of the time. Shang oracle-bone script is the earliest known form of systematic Chinese writing which is a crucial source for understanding the development of Chinese characters as well as the history of the Shang dynasty.

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is the largest repository of oracle bones in Hong Kong, including forty-four oracle bones donated by Mr. Deng Erya’s family to United College and twenty-seven by Mr. Lee Yim to the Art Museum. On the occasion of the United College's sixtieth anniversary and the golden jubilee of the Institute of Chinese Studies (of which Art Museum is an integral part), the exhibition “A Legacy of Elegance” is jointly presented by United College, the CUHK Library and Art Museum as a celebration event.
