The Oriental Ceramic Society is delighted to announce a guided exhibition viewing of “The Legacy of Liangzhu Culture: Neolithic Relics from the Zhejiang Provincial Museum” with Angus Forsyth. On display are artefacts loaned from the Zhejiang Provincial Museum, including 118 sets of Neolithic objects unearthed from Liangzhu archaeological sites in and around the Yangtze River delta. Members will view delicately carved burial jades, unique items of black pottery, and stone farming tools, allowing them to delve into the daily life and philosophy of the Liangzhu culture.
The guided exhibition viewing will be followed by an optional dimsum lunch at the LockCha Tea House with Mr Forsyth.
