Exhibition Venue: Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware (G/F)

Jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and the Zhejiang Provincial Museum
Jointly organised by Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Zhejiang Provincial Museum

The Neolithic Liangzhu culture of southern China disappeared suddenly about 4,000 years ago. Although no records remain describing their culture and religious beliefs, thousands of high quality artefacts have been unearthed from Liangzhu archaeological sites in the Yangtze River delta, allowing us to better understand the importance of this ancient culture on the development of Chinese civilisation. Featuring 118 sets of Neolithic artefacts from major excavation sites, including delicately carved burial jades, stone farming tools and black pottery of unique forms, the exhibition explores the daily life, religious beliefs and intellectual aspects of an ancient people and uncovers the glorious legacy of Liangzhu culture in Neolithic China.
