The spring exhibition”, choose the exhibits in the shang dynasty, hand-copied books at the beginning of the 21st century, both bright gold, carefully crafted with nobles, also have thick ceramic tiles, clumsy lovely street remains, category is rich, from faith ritual, history and culture, art, life etc system history, culture, and of tiger and the tiger relevant section of the common faith.More than 70 percent of the exhibits are on display for the first time.Because of its majestic image, huhu became a symbol of power.Among the exhibits is a pair of tiger symbols of tang Yang Hou (Tang Yang Hou).Although they are only about the size of a finger, they are exquisitely made and outstanding among tiger symbols of the Han Dynasty.On the back of fu, there are neatly inscribed silver inscriptions, which are almost perfectly preserved.Curator Gao Xiuqing said the left and right sides of the tiger symbol can still open and close as they did more than 2,000 years ago.Tiger symbol is the ancient soldier token, because of the shape of a lying tiger, so called “tiger symbol”.Divided into left and right half, the central and the general hold half.When sending troops, you need to check the pair of symbols, and only when the two symbols match can you send troops.This is where the word “accord” comes from.The reporter could not help but think of the story of Lord Xinling “stealing fu to save Zhao”. It is this record in Shiji that makes later generations understand the use of ancient fu, and also adds legendary color to tiger fu.The most eye-catching artifact in the exhibition is tiger Ying.This bronze tiger from the Western Zhou Dynasty, somewhat like a three-legged rounded teapot.Its tubular flow, also known as the vessel’s outlet, is made in the shape of a tiger, hence the name Tiger Ying.On the other side of the stream, its 鋬, or handle, is shaped like a dragon;It has a round carved tiger decoration on the lid, the lid and 鋬 each have a small ring button.Archaeologist Sun Ji told reporters the vessel was used for a liquid spice called turmeric.He explained that ancient people believed that the gods did not eat, but liked to smell the aroma, so they put the wine in a jar and heated it with a fire to promote the evaporation of the wine.Because ancient wine is usually low in concentration and light in smell, “turmeric” is specially mixed into the wine to increase the fragrance to entertain the gods.No more than eight vessels are known to exist, some of them unearthed or even worn, but the vessel is very complete and oddly shaped, making it precious, he said.There is a more twisted story behind the artifact.Its troubled history has been chronicled in previous reports.Tiger ying, once owned by the Qing Dynasty royal family, was taken away when Anglo-French allied forces sacked the Old Summer Palace.In 2018, it appeared in overseas auctions.With concerted efforts, overseas buyers have expressed their willingness to donate tiger Ying to China.Tiger ying has finally returned to the motherland and entered the National Museum.The Spring Festival of the Year of the Tiger, carrying the deep feelings of the Chinese people, and the general audience to celebrate the Year of the Yin tiger of The Yin Dynasty, has a special meaning indeed!The tiger of ordinary people, as a symbol of power on the temple, flew into ordinary people’s homes and produced various utensils in the shape of the tiger, and the cultural connotation of the tiger has been constantly enriched.Tiger, majestic, brave and fearless, with a positive image, is not only a symbol of the army, but also ancient and modern literati love.The exhibition also features many paintings and calligraphy works featuring tigers.In the exhibition hall is an early Qing dynasty painter Ma Fengtu’s “Barren cliff Breast Tiger” scroll, which depicts a tiger cub lying sprawled on the cliff, letting people see the foolish and lovely side of the king of the mountain.The shape of the tiger often appears in daily articles, which is rich in practical function and aesthetic value.There are two tiger-shaped porcelain pillows of the Jin Dynasty, with the back of the tiger cut flat to form an oval pillow surface.They are placed symmetrically, and both are in the shape of a lying tiger, as if they suddenly meet each other’s expression, quite a sense of joy.One has black trees and swan goose patterns painted on the pillow, while the other has a inscription on the back that reads: “Carry sutras during the day, sleep on a tiger’s waist at night, no one dances with his tail, no one dares to lift his beard.”After reading the poem, it also makes people smile.Tiger is a symbol of good luck and peace of the auspicious animal, people hope it can protect the safety of the family.There are many tiger relics in the exhibition, such as this bronze mirror of changyi Descendants with dragon and tiger patterns in the Eastern Han Dynasty.On the back of the bronze mirror, a dragon and a tiger look at each other. The dragon pattern and tiger pattern adopt high relief technology, with clear modeling and clear details, highlighting the majestic and powerful tiger and dragon.Bronze mirrors in the Han Dynasty were decorated with inscriptions. “Changyi descendants” is also a relatively traditional auspicious saying, expressing the ancients’ expectation for the continuation of family heirs and prosperity from generation to generation.In addition to the heavy tiger from history, the exhibition also tries to express the lively folk festival customs and the Atmosphere of Spring Festival.Upon entering the exhibition hall, the audience is surrounded by red: red lanterns, red Spring Festival couplets, red paper-cuts…Along a lantern-decorated corridor, your correspondent entered a traditional multi-entry “courtyard.”Gao xiuqing said that she wanted to express the traditional concept of “home” in this form.The five “doors” in the exhibition hall are not only the separation of the exhibition space, but also the implication of five blessings.The exhibition also specially sets up the multimedia interactive experience area, and applies the dynamic capture technology to let the audience experience the paper-cut art, and feel the fun brought by the combination of scientific power and traditional art.The audience can create zodiac paper-cuts by simulating paper-cuts with their hands on the touch screen, and then the window with tiger pattern appeared on the red background wall of the exhibition hall, which is very interesting.This area became children’s favorite, cut and cut, linger.To see the tiger in the Year of the Tiger, of course, it is not only the element of the tiger in the exhibits, but the “tiger” is everywhere in the exhibition hall — the cloth tiger with exaggerated shape can be seen everywhere.On the window sill next to the paper-cut interactive screen, there is a pair of small tigers made of flowered cloth, with one glaring eye and the other smiling, which can be called the “atmosphere group” of the Year of the Tiger.Cloth tiger is a popular folk handicraft in China and has been included in the national intangible cultural Heritage list.Cloth tiger is generally used as children’s toys and ornaments, but also integrated with the auspicious meaning of the tiger, hope that children like the tiger has a strong vitality, can be safe and healthy.Majestic tiger, brave tiger, naughty tiger, auspicious tiger, tiger totem sustenance of the Chinese people too much good vision.From business to the present, the Chinese people’s pursuit of a strong country and a happy life has never changed.”We hope that in the New Year, with the auspiciousness and vigor of the tiger, the shadow of the epidemic can be dispelling and people can live a more free and high-spirited life,” Gao said.(Beijing, January 26, our reporter Li Yun, our correspondent Ning Qi)
