——Exhibition Overview——

3. Skillful Hands


As Chinese civilization developed, ancient craftsmen adhered to the harmonious ideal of using the "seasons from heaven, the energy of the Earth, the beauty from materials and exquisite craftsmanship" in the creation of their work.


They turned materials such as earth, leather, wood, stone, gold, silk and bamboo into exquisite objects with the unique characteristics of Eastern Civilization. As time goes by, these objects have suffered from varying degrees of damage and are in urgent need of conservation and restoration. With Chinese cultural heritage as the backbone, heritage conservationists have developed a system of conservation and restoration techniques suitable for China, based on the traditional aesthetic concept of 'integrity, symmetry and balance,' combined with the skills of restoration passed down from generation to generation. They also draw on the theories, techniques and mechanisms of the Western restoration system, so as to bring cultural relics back to life.


Skilled and imaginative ancient craftsmen made these objects with their ingenious creativity, and now technology-assisted heritage conservationists inject new life into those damaged cultural heritage.
