Eternal Melodies of Qin
Qin, also called Seven-String Qin, is one of the oldest plucked string instruments in China, with more than three thousand years' history filled with anecdotes. An instrument of great subtlety and refinement, Qin was traditionally favored by scholars and literati, as highlighted by the quote "a gentleman does not part with his Qin or Se (another ancient Chinese string instrument) without good reasons".
The development of Qin music also enriched other artistic forms such as literature, sculptures and paintings. Focusing on Qins of various dynasties, accompanied by important Qin scores, anecdotes and even Qin fabrication scenarios, the exhibition is divided into five sections: Qin, Figurines and portrait bricks of Qin players, Chinese traditional paintings of Qin players, Scores, Qin craftsmanship, allowing the audiences to view Qin art and learn the Qin culture.
