Bowers displays Chinese artifacts

first_imgNext up in the chronological display are the opulent bronze food and wine vessels that were used only by the very powerful in religious ceremonies and feasts beginning in the Shang Dynasty, around 1700 B.C. These bronze objects were also placed in tombs, as were a large, laughing earthenware dog from the Han period and a mustard-colored earthenware camel from the short-lived Sui Dynasty. The camel, saddled up and loaded with goods, illustrates the growing importance of trade along the Silk Road by 500 A.D. The gallery finishes off with a flourish: a Ming Dynasty scroll painting of courtly ladies playing what appears to be a prototype of modern-day golf and a series of bamboo-root carvings dotted with engravings of bats. A brittle oracle bone from the 11th century B.C. sits at the center of the exhibit, its primitive characters still visible on a yellowing flank. Rulers in the Shang Dynasty used the bones to divine the will of the gods and the ancestors by burning the back of the bone and then interpreting the way the engravings on the front corresponded to heat-formed cracks. “People were very superstitious and they would like to have all the fortunetellers (around) before doing anything,” said Zhou Yan Qun, head of the Shanghai Museum’s Cultural Exchange Office. Anne Shih, a museum board member who helped secure the exhibit, hopes it will attract international attention and cement Bowers’ reputation. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “This is a very comprehensive exhibit from one of the most famous Chinese institutions in the world,” said Peter C. Keller, president of the Bowers. “Each dynasty is known for something outstanding, and by choosing the iconic objects from each dynasty, you can tell the story of China.” Securing “Treasures of Shanghai: 5,000 Years of Chinese Art and Culture” was a coup for the Bowers, a small but growing institution in Orange County, about 35 miles south of Los Angeles. The opening coincides with the addition of two new wings there, one of which will remain dedicated to Chinese art after the Shanghai collection leaves on Aug. 19. The show, which cost nearly $300,000 to bring to California, may travel to Houston as well, museum officials said. Keller said the museum signed an agreement with Shanghai years ago but couldn’t host a show until now because of space constraints. He also said a recent program that sends Orange County teenagers to Shanghai to study art and teach English has cemented a bond between the two institutions. The exhibit was worth the wait. The first thing guests see as they enter the hall is a 5,000-year-old earthenware pot from the earliest Neolithic cultures, followed by one of the oldest bronze bowls yet discovered in China and a tall, narrow cup with perforated legs that date to 1,800 B.C. SANTA ANA – The bronze bowl seems unremarkable until you study it from above. Then, the shallow basin suddenly seems to teem with life: etchings of tiny tadpoles, turtles and fish wriggle across the bottom and up the sides, as if trapped in a real-life pond. The bowl, which dates to 770 B.C. and was used in an ancient Chinese hand-washing ritual, is one of dozens of artifacts on loan from the famed Shanghai Museum for a six-month exhibit at the Bowers Museum. The show will trace 5,000 years of Chinese history when it opens Monday and marks the first time in two decades that the prestigious Chinese museum has opened its collection for use by a U.S. institution. Seventy-seven objects guide visitors through the evolution of China’s history, from the simple pottery of the Neolithic cultures to the intricate miniature bamboo panoramas and colorful scrolls of the Qing Dynasty, which ended less than a century ago. last_img read more

PRIEST PLEADS WITH NIGHTCLUB TO CANCEL CONTROVERSIAL ‘GINGER’ EVENT

first_imgA priest has said he is disgusted by an event which is to be held tonight called ‘Shag a Ginger Night.’Fr Lorcán Ó Searcaigh, Parish Priest in Glenfinn, said the event in Pulse Nightclub in Leterkenny was an insult to red haired people.Fr. Ó Searcaigh said on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta today that he had been contacted by concerned parents about the event, who were very angry, and felt that it was clearly a form of bullying against red heads. “I was disgusted to hear the theme of this event. The parents really feel that it’s a form of bullying, and I think it’s insulting to people with red hair.”He said that he had in fact contacted Pulse nightclub to verify that the information he had was accurate.“I spoke to the nightclub, and they told me that the theme was just a gimmick. I told them that if they had to stoop that low to get people in, they shouldn’t be in business at all.”Fr. Ó Searcaigh said that he had spoken to the Gardaí, but that there was no law being broken as there were no laws against discrimination on grounds of appearance, and that it would be a civil rather than a criminal matter. The Letterkenny Institute of Technology have said the event is nothing to do with them and they are not involved in its promotion.Fr Ó Searcaigh appealed to the nightclub to change the theme of the event.“I spoke to the nightclub a second time as well, and told them again that I was very unhappy about the event and that a lot of people were very upset about it.”The event has attracted a lot of controversy, promising free entry to people with red hair, offering to dye people’s hair red, and offering free condoms.PRIEST PLEADS WITH NIGHTCLUB TO CANCEL CONTROVERSIAL ‘GINGER’ EVENT was last modified: October 6th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Pulse NightclubShag A Gingerstudentslast_img read more
