Former President of Afghanistan H.E. Hamid Karzai's Tour in China Red Sandalwood Museum

Pubdate:2017-03-27

The former President of Afghanistan H.E. Hamid Karzai and his delegation accompanied by Peng Keyu, deputy director of Chinese People’s Institution of Foreign Affairs came to visit China Red Sandalwood Museum on the morning of March 27th, 2017. The curator of China Red Sandalwood Museum Ms. Chan Laiwa and her husband warmly welcomed them and accompanied visit.

 

Karzai spoke highly of furniture-made process and carving crafts during his tour in China Red Sandalwood Museum. I went to the zones in Southeast Asia where abounded with red sandalwood numerous times just to choose and purchase the good quality timbers myself for these exhibits. It often took several years to dry these timbers after transported back in order to keep the furniture free of cracks and transformation in a long time. All the exhibits were manufactured completely in ways of furniture in Ming and Qing Dynasties by hands without any usage of metals or machine Curator Chan explained to Karzai. He praised the dedication for the red sandalwood exhibits of Ms. Chan and her contributions to inherit Chinese traditional culture.

 

 


Ms. Chan presented Karzai Chinese traditional gifts of an embroidery of Qingmingshanghetu (a famous painting of Riverside Scene at Tomb Sweeping Festival in Song Dynasty) and the like before they were leaving. Karzai love it very much and specially invited Ms. Chan to visit Afghanistan Exhibition that is held in Forbidden City now to enhance cultural exchange between these two countries.
