Cixi's Marble Boat

Cixi became the Dowager Empress during the late Qing Dynasty (1835-1908). Her son, Tongzhi, became Emperor when he was only five year's old. Cixi was apparently more interested in looking after herself than her Empire. One of the items left behind from her days in power is this Marble Boat.
