An exhibition of ancient glass art titled “Marvelous Colors, Manifold Forms” opened at the Tsinghua University Art Museum in Beijing on Jan 25.

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic ties between China and Japan, the show is based on the 325 pieces or sets collected by the Hirayama Ikuo Silk Road Museum in Japan and supported by various Chinese cultural and museum institutions.

Glass is one of the most important artificial materials. Since the Bronze Age, a massive amount of glass remains have been found in Eurasia and North Africa, reflecting the spread, evolution, exchange and integration of art, technology and trades among different civilizations.

The unique oriental crafts and arts of Chinese glass further influenced the Korean Peninsula and Japan.

The exhibition demonstrates the realistic significance of the cultural exchanges between the East and the West, as well as the inclusiveness and creativeness of Chinese culture.

The exhibition will last until May 5.
