The guide, who has been working in Hong Kong for more than 20 years, said to his knowldsports官方客服乌托邦

Waving banners and signs and chanting anti-Japan slogans, thousands of protesters marched in Seoul on Saturday to exp

The protesters later marched to a nearby boulevard for a candlelight vigil, also calling for the Seldsports官方客服乌托邦

ldsports官方客服乌托邦Police didn’t immediately provide a crowd e

The protest came a day after Japan’s Cabinet approved the removal of the ROK fro

companies to apply for case-by-case approvals for exports to the ROK of hundreds of items deemed sensitive.

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.ldsports官方客服乌托邦
According to David Pritzker, co-curator of the exhibition, the event
ldsports官方客服乌托邦品茶微信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.ldsports官方客服乌托邦
During its peak, the Tubo regime also controlled the oases in the Taklamakan Desert, l
ldsports官方客服乌托邦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 beldsports官方客服乌托邦品茶微信
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 platldsports官方客服乌托邦
form to show the mutual influences between the different cultures along the Silk Road.”
Consequently, the exhibition presents a much bigger picture thr
ldsports官方客服乌托邦品茶微信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.ldsports官方客服乌托邦品茶微信
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 ornamldsports官方客服乌托邦品茶微信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
ldsports官方客服乌托邦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.ldsports官方客服乌托邦品茶微信
“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.”
