Mr. Chiu Yung

 

 

Honored vice president of NPC He Luli, Yang Yanyin, Chen Yunlin, Zheng Xinmiao, Zhao Shaohua, Lv Zhangshen, Tan Tianxing and other present leaders, guests, friends, good morning! Thank you all for your warm words to my mother's donation, I am so touched and encouraged.

 

Last forty years, my mother worked day and night, devoted almost all her vigor to develop Chinese red sandalwood art. She began to repair ancient furniture from 1970s-1980s, later she went to southeast Asia to select and purchase red sandalwood and Huanghuali wood, and then established the furniture factory to make red sandalwood furniture by herself, in the course she got big help from the deans and experts of Palace Museum. In 1990s, she invested heavily to establish the first and maximum sandalwood art museum in the world. From 21th century, she took her masterpieces to the world. Museums of foreign countries like United States, Germany, France, Japan etc. All collected the architecture models made of sandalwood, the presidents, prime ministers, speakers of these countries all gave her high praises and called her “nongovernmental diplomacy ambassador” while their meetings.

 

In recent years, although she is more than 70 years old, she is also working hard to develop the red sandalwood culture like before. The 16 magnificent city gates' models of ancient Beijing, which are made of red sandalwood and buried wood, reproduced the precious landscapes of ancient Beijing. I remember that the city gate model of Anding,which was finished in 2013, once exhibited in the west hall of National Museum of China, just at that moment, curator lv's warm speech words encouraged me a lot.

 

Today, my mother's masterpiece”gilded teakwood model of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest in the Temple Of Heaven” have the honor to be collected by the National Museum of China,and displayed in the hall, attracting audience all over the world, this is the great high affirmation from country for her lifetime pursuit of art,and also the great glory of China Red Sandalwood Museum. I would like to thank the National Museum of China for the grand ceremony.    

 

Thank the vice president of NPC, He Luli,thank you for your longtime concern and support to my mother's undertakings about red sandalwood,and thank you for your arrival during your precious rest time.

 

Meanwhile, I want to thank all leaders, distinguished guests, media friends for your arrivals. Wish you healthy, family happiness!
