Tracking the Mystery of chinese culture


‘If it is true that ‘The unknown generates fear and Mystery fills with wonder’, as the title of the 21st Meeting suggests, it is equally true that Chinese culture has always brought with it for the western world a halo of mystery, amazement and attraction. China is the most populated country in the world, with a culture deep-rooted in tradition. An attempt has thus been made to seek religious sentiment, deep but ambiguous, as a blend of fear and amazement, and this has been done through a number of particularly fascinating aspects. The exhibition is split into five sections: the first covers ‘architecture’ and ‘symbols’, the second ‘writing’, the third ‘medicine’, the fourth ‘religion’. The last section is dedicated to the ‘meeting of Christianity’ and Chinese culture.’
