The art of rhinoceros horn carving blossomed in China during the Ming and Qing dynasties, when increasing affluence among the gentry called for more exotic artefacts. Although animal-lovers will probably not be impressed, fans of miniature sculpted landscapes and meticulously made cups (such as the 17th-century water vessel in double-gourd shape, above) will appreciate the craftsmanship involved. $10 ($5), free on Wednesdays. Hong Kong Museum of Art. Inquiries: 2721 0116
