Tiger Ying: Looted Chinese cultural relic auctioned in UK
On April 11, the Tiger Ying, a cultural relic believed to be looted from China to the U.K., was sold at the Canterbury Auction for 410,000 pounds. The previous owner of the bronze vessel was Royal Marines Captain Harry Lewis Evans. His photos and letters indicate that the antique was very likely to be looted from the Old Summer Palace in the 19th century when British troops invaded China and ransacked the imperial garden.
