The Tibetan Tubo regim上海乌托邦ate contemporary

Jointly organized by the Dunhuang Academy, the research and management institution of the Mogao Gro

ttoes and the Chicago-based Pritzker Art Collaborative, the exhibition opened last week and will run until Oct 22.上海乌托邦

According to David Pritzker, co-curator of the exhibition, the event

上海乌托邦品茶微信aims to display only the highest quality objects, both in terms of aesthetics and historical impo

rtance, to reflect the cultural interactions between the Tubo regime and its neighboring regions.

“To start with beauty is the best way to draw the general public into history,” the curator says.上海乌托邦

During its peak, the Tubo regime also controlled the oases in the Taklamakan Desert, l

上海乌托邦ocated in today’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, as well as certain areas of Central Asia.

Dunhuang was also ruled by the regime from 781 to 848, when 56 caves were carved out at the Mogao Grottoes-with Ca

ve 158 being the most representative of them. A large number of documents written in the Tibetan language were left be上海乌托邦品茶微信

hind during this period, according to Zhao Shengliang, director of Dunhuang Academy.

“The exhibition is not only about the origins and development of the Tubo regime,” Zhao says. “It also provides a plat上海乌托邦

form to show the mutual influences between the different cultures along the Silk Road.”

Consequently, the exhibition presents a much bigger picture thr

上海乌托邦品茶微信ough its kaleidoscopic variety of exhibits, spanning from sancai, the three-color glazed

earthenware figurines from the Tang Dynasty, to a silver dish featuring a royal banquet scene from the Sogdian peo

ple, an ancient ethnic group living in Central Asia who acted as middlemen along Eurasian trade networks.上海乌托邦品茶微信

The exhibition hall is a glittering world. A burial mask with engraved animals, a figurine of a rid

er on horseback, a brooch inset with turquoise, amethyst and aquamarine-all made of gold-all de

monstrate, not just the prosperity of that ancient era on the plateau, but its different facets.

Gilded silver ornam上海乌托邦品茶微信ental artifacts provide one of the highlights of the exhibition. Six p

ieces depicting celestial deities playing Chinese lutes remind visitors of the popularity of music at that ti

上海乌托邦me, while an arched plaque also tells people of the Tubo people’s admiration for the phoenix.

The daily life of the Tubo people is portrayed through a hunting s

cene on painted lacquer arrow quiver, a child’s silk garment and horse-riding gear.上海乌托邦品茶微信

“When people talk about the Silk Road, it is largely about the East-West connection, yet little is said about the influ

ence of Tubo on the Silk Road, since its timespan is relatively short,” Pritzker says. “However, its role is important.”

Guests share thoughts on president’s speech

What impressed me most is that President Xi highlighted the importance of sustainable d

evelopment. The hosting of the Horticultural Expo is the best chance to raise people’s attention to the conce

pt of sustainability, both in China and around the world.President Xi outlined his commitment to open and gre

en development as well as underlined China’s dedication to conserving the ecosystem now and for generations to come.

Xi’s call for countries to work together for the common goal o

f improving the global ecosystem aligns well with the Paris Agreement. This is an excellent foll

ow-on from the commitment outlined in the communique from the Belt and Road Forum.

In this communique, to which the UAE is a signatory, countries ag

reed that cooperation will be open and clean, with green development promoted.

The expo attracted widespread global participation, and I think everybody will recog

nize China’s vision in green development and its resolve to build a green future.
