After more than one year of design and preparation, the exciting new exhibition on the second floor of the Six Arts Museum is now open to the public!
With profound traditional culture, China has cultivated a variety of folk arts, resulting in many historic items being left by our ancestors reflecting their colorful life experience.
The new second floor exhibition features a comprehensive sensory experience of more than 23 galleries showcasing nearly 10,000 pieces of folk art. Every gallery has its own theme color partitioned with different patterned brick walls to highlight the ancient items on display.
The exhibition, like the rest of the Six Arts Museum, does not display many items behind glass, thereby allowing our visitors to have a closeup and personal look at the exhibited items.
The ancient style roof adds a nostalgic atmosphere to the exhibition, and staged vignettes add to the diversity of the exhibition by providing a glimpse into how the items were used in daily life.
Items on display include wonderful architectural design pieces with intricate carvings, wooden weapon props, intriguing wooden puppets, uniquely shaped fruit boxes, jewelry, makeup and vanity cases, exquisite shrines, ancestral banners and much more.
Some of the galleries display tools for daily life, as well as folk arts and architectural design covering all aspects of ancient people’s lives, for instance, etiquette culture, as well as ancestral and marriage customs.
Every old item on display embodies a myriad of stories and mysteries, including its function, its former location, its former owner, as well as the craftsman who created what we now consider to be inspiring pieces of ancient folk art.
Seeing is believing. We invite you to visit this exciting new exhibition in the new year.
