Quanzhou “Maritime Silk Road” Culture Exhibition Area

  In the Exhibition "China and the Middle East along the Maritime Silk Road in the 10th-14th Centuries" a total of 62 exhibits, including 45 pieces of photos, 2 ship models(an Arabic ship and a Chinese ancient ship), 3 stone tablets (replica) and 12 pieces of rubbings would try to present the exchange history between China and the Arab World during the 10th-14th century AD. Chinese porcelain wares, silk fabrics and daily goods were travelled to many nations along the Maritime Silk Road by ancient Chinese merchants, while spices and jewelries from the Arab World were shipped to ports along the coastline of China, among which Quanzhou, called Zayton in ancient times, stood out as the largest trade port of China. It is remarkable that Quanzhou still preserves a good wealth of historic monuments and sites that bear witness to trade contacts, immigration activities and cultural exchanges between China and Western world in the 10th-14th centuries. They mark significant testimonies to East-West maritime exchanges in a very important period of human history. This exhibition is aimed at displaying ancient, rare and appealing historic remains of Quanzhou and reflecting its maritime cultural traditions and urban spirit that feature openness, diversity and inclusion.
