Melbourne’s Chinese Musuem in Cohen Place is exhibiting a collection of priceless Han Dynasty artefacts.
When launching the exhibition on June 27, the Acting Consul General for the Peoples Republic of China, Huang Guobin, said: “I have watched the scope of projects over the years and this is certainly the most impressive and inspirational one that I have seen.”
Mr Huang said: “I believe that this exhibition will serve as a very helpful insight into Chinese history and culture and will help in fostering a deeper understanding of Chinese people and their past.”
Museum director Peter Selinger said: “The Han Dynasty is the period of Chinese history from which we can see a strong reflection into today’s society. Leaders in global trade, innovators in technology, agriculture, science and art: does that describe the China of today or of 2,000 years ago?”
The exhibition runs until next April.
