Sanxingdui Display @ Shenzhen Museum – Futian
September 14 All day
A small exhibition interpreting Sanxingdui opened at the Shenzhen Museum’s ancient art division last Friday. Through the relics on loan from Sanxingdui Museum and Jinsha Museum in Sichuan Province and 3D-printed replicas of Sanxingdui’s star items, the exhibition replicates a sacrificial scene based on archeologist Tang Jigen’s research.
Sanxingdui is deemed a limitless archaeological treasure trove with mysteries that still exist even as new discoveries emerge every few years. The pottery, jade, gold and bronze wares unearthed from Sanxingdui also reflect the exquisite craftsmanship and smelting techniques of the people in the ancient Shu Kingdom. These silent relics speak to us and show how much there is to learn and to discover.
Dates: Until Oct. 23
