"Li Le Hua Zhang-a Special Exhibition of Cultural relics in Hubei Province, China" held in New Delhi
Xinhua News Agency, New Delhi, November 14 (Reporter Zhao Xu) "Li Le Hua Zhang-China Hubei Cultural relics Special Exhibition" opened on the evening of 13 November at the Indian National Museum in the Indian capital New Delhi. The special exhibition displays more than 100 cultural relics from the Hubei Provincial Museum.
The cultural relics on display include bronze wares of the Shang and Zhou dynasties, jade wares of the late Neolithic Age and gold wares of the early Ming Dynasty. Among them, the bronzes unearthed in Yejiashan in the early Western Zhou Dynasty were exhibited abroad for the first time. Among the exhibits are the gold ingots unearthed from the tomb of King Liang Zhuang in Hubei Province, which are directly related to Zheng he's voyage to the West.
Reporters saw at the scene that the National Museum of India opened up a special exhibition hall for the exhibition and redecorated it. Indian spectators who came to the exhibition were attracted by the well-shaped and beautifully cast exhibits and stopped and watched carefully from time to time.
Chinese Ambassador to India Sun Weidong said at the opening ceremony that the preparations for the exhibition took more than a year. China and India are both ancient civilizations, and the two countries have long had close exchanges in the fields of culture, education and trade through the Silk Road. It is hoped that China and India will deepen practical cooperation in various fields, expand people-to-people exchanges, and enhance mutual understanding and trust.
Ragvendra Singh, director of the National Museum of India, said in an interview with reporters that Chinese cultural relics are very welcome to be exhibited in India. The exhibition not only enables the Indian people to appreciate the extensive and profound traditional Chinese culture and the level of science and technology at that time, but also vividly demonstrates the long-standing cultural ties between China and India.
The exhibition will last for two months.
