The left hand holds farm tools, and the right hand holds the brush, There are a group of peasant painters in Longde

In the blue sky and white clouds, the farm workers are busy in the gap, and the peasant woman wrapped in the white scarf is nursing the baby child. This painting, the harvest season, is from the hand of Li Yanhu, a peasant painter in Longde county. Longde county is located in the west of the six Panshan mountains in the south of Ningxia. The car passes through the country road, and the colorful hand painted wall paintings are flashed from time to time. The strong cultural atmosphere can be seen everywhere.

Peasant paintings, as a popular painting, are mostly paintings and paintings produced by farmers themselves. In the land of Xihaigu, the farmer painting is the treasure of the folk painting garden of Longde county. Many farmers living in this country hand in hand brushes to describe what they have seen and heard on the soil of the countryside. The change of painting content clearly reflects the real change of people’s production and life in xihaiji area.

Wang Xiaojuan, the deputy manager of the six Panshan cultural city in Longde County, said: “these paintings are derived from life, life, simple subject matter, and the writing method may not be professional, but the content is most inspiring.”

Lu Sheng Sheng, a native born peasant painter in Lian Ping Village, Lian Cai Town, Longde, fell in love with painting when he was young. “On my way to school, I like to draw my fingers on the soil and see what I paint. After growing up, there was no instruction from the teacher, and when the farm work was done, we used to paint to relax. ” Lu, who is 56 years old, believes that life has given him the wisdom of painting, so that he can hold farm tools on his left hand and hold the paintbrush in his right hand. And Lv Changsheng’s life changed because of his love for painting.

In the past, his hand-painted paintings could not be known by the outside world, but only in the neighbours. In 2009, in order to develop the local cultural undertakings in Longde County, the six Panshan cultural city was built. In the 5 years after the completion of the construction, the government provided the households with the policy of reducing the rent and heating the air. Lv Jusheng was one of the first businesses to enter. “There are more people here, and the paintings sell more.” Lu said with a smile.

Diamond in laboratory is more pure and cheaper than natural diamond

Natural diamonds are expensive, and consumers eager to have a high-purity diamond may be able to consider the diamonds produced by British scientists in the laboratory. This kind of synthetic diamond is cleaner than natural diamond, but the price is 20% cheaper.

Professor Olive Williams of the University of Cardiff led a team to manufacture diamonds for semiconductor research. They first put a natural diamond as a “seed” into a vacuum chamber to remove impurities in the air and then pump gas methane and hydrogen into the vacuum chamber at 3000 degrees Celsius to form a highly charged plasma.

Because of the higher temperature, the two gases split rapidly. The carbon atoms split from methane gas are assembled in “seed diamonds”, which naturally mimic the crystal structure of the natural diamond, “growing” at a speed of 0.006 millimeters per hour. In the laboratory environment, a 1 carat size diamond can be cultivated in a few days.

The same technology can be used for the production of jewellery diamonds. Professor Williams said that the purity of diamonds produced in this laboratory is higher than almost any substance existing in nature. He told the British Sky News Channel: “diamonds from every species” contain only one impurity per one trillion atoms. Compared with natural diamonds of the same size, this kind of synthetic diamond is 15% to 20% cheaper.

This technology is expected to completely subvert the diamond industry. Several large enterprises have tried to “cultivate” jewellery diamonds. However, Jean Mark Liberger, chairman of the diamond manufacturer’s Association, believes that artificial diamonds and natural diamonds are still of different value, even if the appearance is difficult to distinguish. Because the value of jewelry depends to a certain extent on “emotional quality”.

Over the past three years, the archaeological survey of the jog River Basin in the middle reaches of the Brahmaputra River has found 51 sites, including ancient ruins, ancient tombs and grottoes. Chen Zujun, a researcher at the Tibet Institute of cultural relics and conservation, said this fully shows that the number of immovable cultural relics in Tibet (especially in the wilderness) is more than third times more than 4277 of the Chinese cultural relics survey.

Chen Zujun said that from 2015 to 2017, the archaeological team of the Institute of Archaeology of Sichuan University and the Cultural Relics Bureau of Shannan city conducted an archaeological survey on the river basin in the middle reaches of the Yarlung Zangbo River in the middle reaches of the Yarlung Zangbo River, and found that there were 6 ancient sites, 26 ancient tombs, 3 ancient buildings, 16 grottoes and stone carvings. In addition, the team conducted a review of the region like Tang cemetery, Banda pagoda site 6 cultural relics etc..

He also mentioned that many of the wild rock paintings found in the Joan River Basin are quite different from those in Tibet Ali, Nagqu, Shigatse, Altai of Xinjiang, Helan mountains of Ningxia and the shadow of Inner Mongolia in the Yin mountains of Inner Mongolia, while similar rock paintings are also found in the middle reaches of the Yarlung Zangbo River. The territory of Lhasa Qushui Linzhou county and Northern Tang Gu.

“However, these rock paintings are not legible, but they provide important information for us to further study the history and culture of the middle reaches of the Yarlung Zangbo River.” Chen Zujun said that three years of archaeological work showed that carrying out a comprehensive archaeological survey with basin as the object greatly enriched the cognition of the ancient culture of the region, and after the end of the survey of the third Chinese cultural relics in Tibet, a more thorough investigation was carried out to understand the ancient culture of various regions in Tibet and provided the whole of the ancient culture.

Mystery of Renaissance: Kaiser silver exhibition of Metropolitan Museum

The main exhibit of this exhibition is a group of special combinations made up of 12 silver plated gold tie cups, which are collectively referred to as Aldo Brandi Nitai Za cups. This is the first reunion of the 12 tazha decorated cups since the middle of nineteenth Century. They have been dismantled and dispersed all over the world.

This exhibition provides a rare opportunity for visitors to enjoy the most beautiful and mysterious relics of Goldsmith’s works in sixteenth Century. According to the narration of Rome historian Suetonius, after proper rearrangement, he recorded the history of 12 Kaiser cups. Each foot of the cup is a foot high, and a shallow foot plate, with a Kaiser image on it, has four pictures of the ruler’s life in the grooves of the plate.

Over the past 150 years, some of the most extraordinary and mysterious treasures of Renaissance have appeared in people’s eyes for the first time. A set of 12 European silver plated gold tie cups, called Aldobrandini Tazze, will be reassembled and exhibited at the verderstone manor. These beautiful table decorations commemorated twelve different Kaiser, the notorious rulers of ancient Rome. Each cup has teza decorated a portrait of a Kaiser, the tray has four scene figure in his life. Sue E Tony Lucius, a historian in Rome, wrote the book “life of twelve Kaiser” in the early second Century, and the 48 illustrations in the book make the book very vivid.

The mystery of Kaiser silverware is that no record can find out their origin. We can not know who had been forging those silverware, who belonged to it, and what purpose they had been forged. However, the new research done in the exhibition now answers these questions to a certain extent.

“The mystery of the Renaissance: the Kaiser silver show of the Metropolitan Museum of the Metropolitan Museum” is on display at the Verde eston manor because almost half of the last two centuries had been part of the Rothschild family collection. In 1872, Baron Anselm Rothschild’s father built the veststone estate, and included a silver cup in his collection in Vienna.

In the centuries after they were created, 12 tie cups were dismantled and were wrongly reassembled and assembled, and then widely dispersed in Europe and America. Through the re combination of reasonable, the decoration is reminiscent of the teza Cup before the 12 emperor Julius Caesar to Domitian history. These 48 scenes spanned nearly 150 years of Rome history, from a comprehensive understanding of the ancient relics, fierce fighting and brilliant victory, to a close glimpse of the royal life.

However, although the original biography of Su Terni was filled with stories such as Caligula and Nero’s notoriously bad behavior, the terja decorated their subjects in the best way and deliberately ignored many of their crimes to create a flattery of the power of the Empire. Now new research shows that at the end of the sixteenth Century, the maker of Kaiser silverware might be a silver Kaiser emperor in Holland, a member of the Habsburg dynasty, and a ruling family of the Holy Rome empire.

The modern history of Kaiser silverware began in 1826, when the silver Thai dressing cup caused great sensation in a merchant’s shop in London, which was first known as the work of Benvenuto Cellini, the most famous goldsmith of the Italy Renaissance. It was in this period that all 12 TAIC cups were plated in order to maintain the taste of the nineteenth Century, so that the TAIC cups we saw today were gold, not the silver implied by their names. This is the last time they get together, and then they are sold to different owners, and now they are scattered in public and private collections around the world.

Since the mid nineteenth Century, this complete set of devices has not been seen together, when it was dismantled and separated, and its components were mistaken. In the exhibition, all 12 elements of the Tate cup will be displayed in their original configuration – a unique opportunity for modern viewers to appreciate one of the most mysterious relics of the sixteenth Century goldsmith works.

The exhibition shows the elegance and elegance of the TetA ornament cup, as well as the ancient and Renaissance coins and medals, as well as the Renaissance printmaking, books and paintings. The exhibition also through the late history of the show, teza inspired 18 and nineteenth Century cup decoration works. In addition to providing new insights into the cup and their history, the exhibition also explored the mystical reputation of the work, allowing visitors to track clues so as to better understand the Renaissance masterpiece.

The differential method and the main characteristics of Laoshan green

How to identify the Laoshan Scenic Area

One depends on the change of color. Laoshan green to green tone, but not a single green, dark green color deep black color, shallow pink and green blue, yellow, white, and red color stripes, with countless changes.

The two is to see the change of crystallization. Most of the Laoshan scenic area is lamellar crystal, different color shades staggered, the inclined fault often presents a curve pattern color varied, very beautiful. There are also some in the transparent green hybrid mica crystal, showing many flashing Venus particles.

Three to see the changes in the stone. Laoshan green mineral is mainly composed of chlorite. A variety of beautiful crystals can be seen with microscope slides, and the gloss of the jade can be found. The choice of stone quality should be fine, solid, crystal and smooth.

The four is to see the change of form. Laoshan green body as Taihu stone as the wrinkled dress cave connected, can not require the wrinkle, penetration, but still require the artistic charm of the show, the shape of thin, majestic, natural and elegant demeanor.

The world’s thinnest bowl with sonic vibration dance

Gently blowing the breath of light to make a candle, but can let a bowl shake up. If the blow is a little bigger, the bowl is in danger of breaking because it is too thin, thinner than the eggshell, like half the hair.

This thin, the bowl can be as light as a feather webs hold up, if you put it in playing symphony to the speaker, it will be like a jelly with the sound vibration “dance” to subvert the people’s minds on ceramic impression.

This “dancing bowl” comes from Huang Zhengnan, a famous Potter in Taiwan, China. He used the professional scale measurement, eggshell thickness of 0.4 mm, 0.3 mm thick and his name card, he made the thinnest eggshell bowl only 0.05 mm. As a result, he gave himself the name of “egg film porcelain” which he made to break the broken porcelain. In the light, the flowers painted in the bowl are clearly visible outside the bowl.

When the guests wanted to pick up a piece of “egg membrane porcelain” fragments, how thin they felt, Huang Zhengnan told the guests to be careful, once the fragments pierced the skin, it would be hard to find them. He has been operated on several times for this.

200 years of pottery history in New Taipei City District of Taiwan is the largest ceramic producing areas, known as the “Taiwan Jingdezhen”, thousands of ceramic factory and more than 2000 ceramic shops gathered here. The four generations of the Huang Zhengnan family in the ceramics to make for a living, was training hard ware art Huang Zhengnan has been engaged in ceramic industry for more than 40 years.

In the late 90s of last century, Huang Zhengnan visited Jingdezhen and became interested in the porcelain works of mainland porcelain master. He then devoted his energies to the research of thin tire porcelain.

At first he used traditional ceramic materials, but every burn must break, and he realized that it was necessary to increase the ductility of the soil. He often can’t sleep at night and think about the recipe all night. Later, he chose the British, Japan and New Zealand China clay kaolin developed exclusive formula, and precise control of furnace temperature.

“To repair the billet is another key. It is very difficult to burn the billet once. It will burn 9 to 12 times in all. The first few times are cut with a blade. Finally, it depends on the grinding. The thickness of the whole bowl must be very uniform, a little uneven, and it will deform during the burning process. ” Huang Zhengnan said.

This need to consume eyesight and wrist bold but cautious. Every step is full of unknowns, the thinner and bigger the bowl, the lower the success rate. He had not been able to count how many times he had failed, and the broken thin tire bowl could heap a mountain.

“When you make it, you must concentrate on it. If you don’t care, the bowl will break. So I usually make it at night and don’t bring my cell phone into the studio. Once upon a time, the broken bowl too much, so I entered the studio with a phobia, hand shaking, I can only say a little slower, a little slower, let yourself calm down.” Huang Zhengnan said.

Even if the eggshell produced, the artist paint is blank risky, no one will be broken if the brush painting, overweight, or too thick glaze, burn out and may break the bowl.

Over the past 10 years, Huang Zhengnan has made 10 thin fetuses whose diameter is over 35 centimeters, and the largest diameter is 53 centimeters. They are fixed in the glass cabinet of the studio, so they dare not move again. Earthquakes in Taiwan often pose a threat to such a thin bowl.

Huang Zhengnan said that a bowl of 53 centimeters in diameter could not have been done, and the success rate of the small bowl could reach 20 – 30%.

The “dancing bowl” attracted the Norway painters to draw pictures on the bowl and collect bowls from the bowls. The collector used Huang Zhengnan to change bowls with the high speed sports car, and made him the only Taiwan Potter who had been exhibited in Shanghai World Expo in 2010 and visited the mainland many times. And in the exchange with the mainland counterparts, Huang Zhengnan can produce new ideas, hoping to continue to innovate in the field of ceramic art.

Although Huang Zhengnan’s works broke the existing world’s thinnest bowl record, but because the production process is confidential, he has not carried on Guinness records.
