From the collection of the famous Swedis archaeologist, paleontologist and geologist, Gunnar Andersson (1874-1960). He was closely associated with the beginnings of Chinese archaeology in the 1920s. His Chinese name was An Tesheng
In 1926, Andersson founded the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities in Stockholm, Sweden (in Swedish: Östasiatiska museet), a national museum established to house the Swedish part of the collections from these first-ever scientific archaeological excavations in China. Andersson served as the director of the MFEA until he was succeeded in 1939 by the famous Swedish Sinologist Bernhard Karlgren.
