Dear Respected Vice Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress He Luli, Dear Curator Chan Laiwa, Dear leaders, experts & guests,

Good morning!

 

Before 19th CPC National Congress, “the Ceremony of National Museum Collection for Gilded Teakwood Model of Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest in the Temple of Heaven” is holding in the west hall of National Museum. On behalf of National Museum, I would like to express my sincere welcome and grate.

 

This glorious gilded model was donated by Ms. Chan Laiwa, the curator of China Red Sandalwood Museum. The artistic model collected by national museum enriched the collection of National Museum further. It is a case of inheriting and developing Chinese traditional & outstanding culture which has extraordinary sense. In October, 2013, “Red Sandalwood Models of Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests and Andingmen” were exhibited in National Museum for two months and received good appraise from the audience.

This glorious gilded model was hand-made by Ms. Chan and her artisan team with precious teakwood from Burma and covered with three-layer gold leaf for more than three years in 1990s. Ms. Chan also invited many senior experts from Palace Museum to her workshop for supervision. With diameter of 9m and height of 3.8m, it is completely made according to the original architecture with ancient tenon and mortise structures in proportion of one to ten. This model has great values of arts and collection. This artistic model was collected by National Museum and is exhibiting on the most attractive site of the art gallery. The audience could approach and enjoy the beauty of Chinese ancient architecture and the beauty of wooden art.  

National museum of China is the ancestral hall and ancestral temple of Chinese culture. The origin of Chinese dream and cultural living room of national culture which has a reception of 40 million audience from home and abroad within 6 years from the opening of the museum with annual reception of 7.5 million audience for the latest 3 years. It was appraised as the most welcomed museum worldwide by relevant institutes from UK and America.

On 29th November, 2012, President Xi came to National Museum to visit the fundamental layout of “the road to revival” with members of 18th Standing Committee of Political Bureau and comrade of Secretariat of the Central Committee of the CPC where President Xi proposed the time theme of Realizing the Great Chinese Rejuvenation for the first time. Before the opening of 19th CPC National Congress, Ms. Chan donated the precious model freely to the National Museum which is a gift for 19th CPC National Congress. I would like to express deep gratitude and respect on behalf of National Museum for Ms. Chan’s patriotism and loyalty to CPC party & her dedication. National Museum would cooperate with China Red Sandalwood Museum further and contribute to Chinese cultural exhibition together for the realizing the Great Chinese Rejuvenation.
