It was our pleasure to have Ms. Alice Leung, L’ÉCOLE Asia Pacific Education Manager, conducting a private tour on “The Art of Gold: 3000 Years of Chinese Treasures” when it was closed to the public. The selection of gold jewellery pieces on display in this exhibition has carefully been chosen from the Mengdiexuan collection. Dating from Shang dynasty to Qing dynasty, they demonstrate various techniques of gold crafting, including hammering and chasing, casting, gold wire and filigree, as well as granulation. To be able to admire first hand the masterful details, and charmed by the animated animal motifs, it was indeed a very effective way to learn!
“Thank you for organising the guided tour for the Art of Gold. It’s wonderful to see the beautiful collection and learn about the major techniques of goldwork. Really enjoyed it. Look forward to joining other activities.”
