“Perhaps they once wore cong like people wear Christian crosses or Buddhist beads today,” he adds.上海夜生活

However, the biggest cong ever found, a 6.5-kg article commonly referred to as the “king of cong” due to its size, is probab

上海夜生活品茶微信ly too heavy to be worn. This highlight of the ongoing exhibition was unearthed by Liu in 1986 in Fanshan cem

etery among the ruins of Liangzhu. More than 1,000 jade articles were found in the cemetery.

Gao explains that while previous exhibitions of Liangzhu jade mainly focused上海夜生活

on the most important items, the intention of this show is to present a panorama.

“We selected whole sets of jade found in cemeteries and put them on display at the same time,” h

上海夜生活品茶微信e says. “That way, people can gain a more complete view of the ritual systems back then.”

Axe-shaped artifacts called yue-common symbols of power-were found in Liangzhu. Whe

n the “king of yue”, the largest item of its kind is put on display, it attracts a great deal of attention not jus

t due to its size, but for its solemn character. A tiny relief of a Liangzhu motif on on上海夜生活品茶微信

e corner of the axe looks like the earliest example of a “logo” marked on a Chinese product.

上海夜生活In the graves of female nobles, disc-shaped jades called bi ar

e commonly praised for their elegance. Threads of tubular jade pieces,

beads and bracelets at the exhibition also show the splendor and intricacy of the jewelry at the time.上海夜生活

“This uniform ceremonial system using jade shows a united belief and strong cohesion i

上海夜生活品茶微信n society,” Liu says. “Compared with previous times, jade from the Liangzhu period had made a hug

e leap in terms of number, size and quality. This boom accompanied the rise in kingship.”

ions, institutions, supermarkets and companies since 2017. Since then, the authority has filed

13,400 cases and issued 15.15 million yuan ($2.2 million) in fines for improper garbage disposal. 上海夜生活

The number of cases and scale of fines have been increasing in past years.

 上海夜生活品茶微信Fu Yong, deputy head of the urban management office in the Babaoshan area in Shijingshan district, said they have b

een checking companies and public institutes in their administrative region to follow the rules.

“Every year, companies in the region have to sign trash disposal contracts, and they should follow 上海夜生活

the classification rules accordingly. Otherwise, the sanitation departments will not collect their trash,” he said.

 上海夜生活In addition, the city government has asked each district to build at least one waste s

Now Beijing has 224 residential communities that are doing garbage sorting.

 上海夜生活Wang Jian, a waste sorting supervisor at a residential community in Shij

cordance with categories including recyclables, kitchen waste, hazardous waste and other waste. 上海夜生活品茶微信

“They can use their points to redeem rewards like waste bins or bags,” she said. “On

Li Weigang, an official with the waste classification and treatment depart

Companies’ participation has helped authorities become familiar with garbage classification and treatment after sorting, whi

the exhibition is named after one of the paintings on show by reno

wned artist Chen Yifei. The showcase opened on June 21 and will end on Sept 8.上海夜生活品茶微信

About 200 works of art are on display at the show, including oil paintin

上海夜生活gs, Chinese ink paintings, prints, sketches, sculptures, political posters and New Year

posters, many of which are iconic images that used to appear in textbooks and other publications.

According to Chen Lyusheng, curator of the exhibition and deputy director of the art theory co上海夜生活品茶微信

mmittee under the China Artists Association, the Long Museum’s collection of New China art started be

上海夜生活cause of the personal interests of the founders of the museum, Wang Wei and Liu Yiqian.

The couple established the first Long Museum in Pudong in

2012 before opening the second one, the Long Museum West Bund in Xuhui district, in 20上海夜生活品茶微信

14. Two other branches of the museum opened in Chongqing in 2016 and Wuhan in 2018.

上海夜生活Chen Lyusheng notes that while Liu has always been collecting classical Chinese art, hi

s wife Wang has instead been focusing on collecting New China art from 1949 onward.

“Long Museum has gained a special position in the field of modern Chinese art since上海夜生活品茶微信

1949, having accumulated a unique collection of art because of Wang Wei’s personal enthusiasm,” he says.

上海夜生活Wang began collecting revolutionary art in 2003 after she bought a paint

ing titled Hard Times by Zhang Hongxiang at an auction. The artwork depicts Chairman Ma

o Zedong standing among Red Army soldiers in the mountainous area of Jinggangshan.上海夜生活品茶微信

Following that purchase, Wang went on to amass a collection of more than 100 paintin

上海夜生活gs from the period before presenting an exhibition at the Shanghai Art Museum in 2009. The collection cu

rrently has about 300 artworks that have been presented in exhibitions in Shanghai and Chongqing.

According to Liang Jiang, the head of the research institute of Gua上海夜生活品茶微信

ngzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangdong province, the Long Museum’s art col

上海夜生活品茶微信lection is so impressive that he often has to borrow their works for exhibitions.

“I was one of the curators of a major exhibition of Guangdong art, and we had to borrow some paintings, including imp

ortant pieces depicting Chairman Mao in the countryside, from the Long Museum,” he says.

“I see that the collection at the Long Museum is making up for th

e deficiency of national art collections in State-owned institutions. I believe the Long Museum is le

ading a good trend that is worthy of praise. I know how difficult it is to achieve this.”

Looking back at the past 22 years, Hong Kong has experienced some changes, ups and downs in the politi上海夜生活女神会所

Lam made the remarks at a reception to celebrate the 22nd anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to the motherland and the establishment of the HKSAR.

Every year, July 1 is an opportunity to look back on the past and look forward to a new year ahead for the SAR, she said.

That requires Hong Kong society to make plans together and work in concert, Lam said.

She also took note of the problems the city is currently facing, including the unstable
