“Lady Under A Tree & Figures Under A Tree”
This event has ended.
To commemorate the 100th year that the Otani Expeditions brought back the Important Cultural Property “Lady Under a Tree”, (owned by MOA Museum of Art), excavated from the Astana Karakhoja Tombs of Turfan, East Turkestan, this historical artifact is reunited with the Important Cultural Property, “Figures Under a Tree”, owned by Tokyo National Museum, said to be part of the same series of work, yet brought into Japan via separate routes and held separately. Here these works are shown together for the first time, alongside “Painted Sarira Casket” (owned by Tokyo National Museum), a masterpiece of Western Chinese Art also collected by the Otani Expeditions.
The “erhu” which can also be said to be the representation of the China folk instruments is charming many people in the tone which is tinged with the sadness. Please enjoy the tone of an erhu at a Noh theater.
