Hainan Pavilion at Shanghai Expo displays Hainan’s three treasures
The unique geography and cultural environment endow the Hainan with extant treasures of "Li brocade", "Hainan ceramics" and "Huanghuali wood", whose historic significance, national character, artistic quality and nonrenewable property establish their collection value and appreciation potential. Being world-famous for gorgeous color, exquisite patterns and fine craftsmanship, the Li brocade is a kind of traditional garment cloth created by forefathers of Li Nationality during the lengthy life accumulation and social practice. Hainan ceramics are important material evidences of foreign trade, ceramic export sale and shipbuilding histories of the Tang Dynasty, Five Dynasties, Song Dynasty, Yuan Dynasty, Ming Dynasty and Qing Dynasty after the opening of Marine Silk Road. The Huanghuali wood is honored as "gold of wood" which has been domestically and internationally known for a long time.
Since the opening of Hainan Pavilion, Li brocade-based costumes and wall hangings are exhibited in the pavilion. Also there is on-site demonstration of Li brocade weaving. Many Huanghuali wood products are displayed, too. All these treasures have attracted a large number of audiences.
The two newly coming Hai ceramics collections are from collectors of our province. One is relic of blue-white ceramics bowl of the Yuan Dynasty and the other is brown glaze jar cover of the Tang Dynasty. It is informed that the two exhibitions are typical ones. The blue-white ceramics of the Yuan Dynasty opened up a new transition era from plain ceramics to colored ones. The richly and vigorous features, bold drawings and various painting levels of Hai ceramics are totally different from the Chinese traditional esthetic sentiment, being a splendid flower in the history of China ceramics.
