Description

The Landscape Map of the Silk Road is a map that was drawn on a silk handscroll in blue and green landscape painting style. The map, which is about 30 metres long and 0.6 metres wide, was once held in other countries. It named over 200 cities, ranging from Jiayu Pass, Gansu province, in the east, to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, in the west. This implies that the Chinese had grasped clear understanding of the Silk Road in the 16th century.

In light of the great historical value of the Landscape Map of the Silk Road, the exhibition will display the entire 30-metre-long map and bring to life the everyday activities of people who lived along the Silk Road through vivid animations. You can also learn about the features of the blue and green landscape painting style and design your own painting of Hong Kong in the same style. Through interactive exhibits and models, you will learn about the tools and techniques used in ancient Chinese and modern cartography.

《絲路山水地圖》是一幅以青綠山水風格繪畫的絹本手卷地圖,全長約30米,寬約0.6米。手卷一度流落海外,最後由許榮茂先生收購並捐贈予故宮博物院成為館藏。經學者研究所得,《絲路山水地圖》為明朝嘉靖年間的宮廷繪畫,為皇帝御覽而製。地圖描繪了東起甘肅嘉峪關,西達沙特阿拉伯麥加之間的廣闊地域,當中標注了200多個地名,反映中國在十六世紀對絲綢之路沿線地域有明確的認識。

《絲路山水地圖》有著重要的歷史意義,這展覽除把長逾30米的手卷全幅呈現給觀眾欣賞外,還利用多媒體項目呈現古代絲路沿線人民的生活情景。你可在展覽中認識青綠山水畫的特色和風格,以及設計個人風格的青綠山水香港畫;又或透過多組互動展品和模型,了解中國古代和現今繪製地圖的工具和技術。這展覽亦同時展出多幅繪製於十六至二十世紀初,不同時期的中國和香港地圖,讓你認識當時中西方對中國地理的認知和各種地圖的功用。
