Exhibition featuring Guangzhou's history underway in Baiyun Airport
Update: 2021-02-09     Source: Newsgd.com

An exclusive exhibition featuring Lingnan's history is open to the public for free from January 28, 2021 to March 30 at the Art Gallery of Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport Terminal 2 (the fourth floor of the Departure Hall).

This exhibition provides an opportunity for passengers via Baiyun Airport to quickly explore the ancient history and culinary culture of Guangzhou.

The airport adopts the coarse-linen yellow of the Han Dynasty (B.C.202-A.D.220) as the main color scheme, with the red and black of that period as partial decoration, creating a palace atmosphere of Han Dynasty with characteristics of Nanyue Kingdom (B.C.204-B.C.111).

Pasting paper-cuts on windows is a custom of Chinese New Year, and the use of paper-cuts with cirrus patterns, symbolizing auspiciousness, has the effect of looking out at the clouds from the cabin.

A number of replicas of cultural relics, such as a Bronze Tripod with an inscription of "Pan Yu", the Tiger Tally and the Bronze Oven are selected for display, on the basis of the photo exhibition of the Museum of the Nanyue King of Western Han Dynasty as the main content.

Starting from the establishment of Nanyue Kingdom and the founding of "Pan Yu" city (present-day Guangzhou) more than 2,200 years ago, the exhibition will tell the historical origins of Nanyue stories and Guangzhou New Year's custom according to the following three levels:

● Nanyue stories

● Clothing, food, housing and transportation

● Guangzhou New Year

In addition, there are also cultural and creative derivatives such as a "Tiger General" on display and an interactive experience area where visitors can experience the life of ancient people in that period.
