Famous Ancient Chinese Paiting on Display in Beijing
By Mei Manuel, February 28, 2018 02:02 AM
The painting 'Bunian Tu', one of China's most popular painting from the ancient period is currently on display in the Capital Museum in Beijing for a special exhibit that would span for two months.
The painting is 1.3-meters long and it is also known as 'Emperor Taizong Receiving the Tibetan Envoy.' According to research, the scroll painting may have been painted in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) period by renowned artist Yan Liben. However, it is also possible that the painting is a copy from the North Song Dynasty (960-1127) painting Yan had also done.
Today, the painting is a part of the Palace Museum collection and is considered one of the most important artifacts that reflects the Tang Dynasty's connection with Tibet.
The 'Bunian Tu' is just one of the 200 items currently a part of the 'TIbetan History and Culture' exhibition happening in the Capital Museum, providing visitors a glimpse of the region's religion, history, importance and others.
Some of the pieces included also come from key temples and sites in Tibet, such as the Potala Palace and the Jokhang Temple. The Temple was recently hit by a fire on February 17, but no cultural relics were damaged thanks to the quick response of the fire department.
The exhibition would end in July.
