Silks from the Silk Road--Chinese Art of Silk, the second major exhibition of the China-Qatar 2016 Year of Culture, opened at the Qatar Museum on March 23.

The exhibition highlights ancient Chinese silk art and provides insight into the Silk Road. It aims to map out the history of silk and its cultural significance over thousands of years. Ninety-five silk products and modern artistic works of silk selected by the China National Silk Museum will be exhibited until May 9.

During the opening ceremony, artists demonstrated the process of silk manufacturing, which gave visitors a vivid experience of Chinese silk.

Chinese Ambassador Li Chen and Qatar Museum's Chairwoman H.E. Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani attended the ceremony.

The Silk Road was a bridge for economic and cultural exchange between East and West over 2,000 years ago. China and Qatar will hold a series of events through the cultural year.
