Qingdao Museum Tour
The thinker Alexis DE Tocqueville once said, "When the past no longer lights the future, the heart will wander in darkness." For thousands of years, countless ancient people have been telling us to take history as a mirror, and the museum is a treasure house full of history and culture. On November 28th, at 2 o 'clock in the afternoon, our class of students went to Qingdao Museum to enjoy the charm of the museum.
Qingdao museum is divided into 7 exhibition halls, students not only understand the historical development of Qingdao, but also learn porcelain, crafts, coins, paintings and calligraphy and other arts edification.
The first half of the theme exhibition hall of Qingdao Historical Dialect shows the development of the ancient Qingdao area and major historical events. What impressed us most is those wooden ship model. Qingdao is an important port and coastal defense area, where shipping is very developed. In ancient times, Qingdao's commerce was also very prosperous. Qingdao has also been the pinnacle of Taoism. The second half of the theme exhibition hall shows the unique buildings, street scenes and relics of Qingdao in modern times. From the German invasion, the May 4th Movement, the Japanese occupation and the founding of New China, what changes have taken place in culture, education or people's life? The exhibition hall recreates the appearance of those years, allowing students to experience the scene.
The handicraft exhibition hall carefully selects seven different kinds of handicraft, including lacquer carving, bamboo carving, enamel stove, jade ware, ink and inkstone, pottery and bronze statue, which not only shows the unique aesthetic taste of the Chinese nation, but also shows the hardworking spirit of the ancestors who love life. The Porcelain exhibition hall showcases blue and white porcelain, painted porcelain and glazed porcelain, allowing us to experience the artistic charm of China's porcelain culture. After seeing the two exhibition halls, the students were praised repeatedly. Even the small smoke stove is full of intricate and delicate patterns, which is the the exquisite life of the ancients
Shellfish coin, coinage and square hole round coin are displayed in the coin exhibition hall, popularizing the profound social, political, economic and cultural background behind currency and the development history of currency.
The country painting exhibition hall shows the wood-block New Year pictures of The folk in Shandong, which have the local artistic characteristics. The students looked at the beaming New Year pictures and realized the quality of the simple People in Shandong. The exhibits in the landscape painting exhibition hall were created by Gao Fenghan, a famous one-armed painter in the Qing Dynasty. His story also gave great encouragement to students. The two exhibition halls appreciate both the refined and the popular, and draw the art world together.
Human beings are small and short, how can we know the astronomical geography, ancient and modern? Because civilization is preserved in words, in patterns, in utensils. Maybe that's why we go to museums.
