Atlanta KC Old Boy Glendon Thompson has been named USA project manager for the China's Daza Rock Carvings Tour.
The Chongqing government of the People's Republic of China, the Art Museum of Dazu Rock Carvings and the Dazu Grottoes Cultural Innovation Investment Company are carefully selecting cities for the worldwide tour of the Chinese National Cultural Relic and the 1999 UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dazu Rock Carvings.
In 1999 UNESCO listed the Dazu Rock Carvings as a World Heritage Site, stating that, "The Dazu Rock Carvings are remarkable for their aesthetic quality, their rich diversity of subject matter, both secular and religious, and the light that they shed on everyday life in China during this period. They provide outstanding evidence of the harmonious synthesis of Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism."
Original pieces of national relics on loan from the museum will be on this tour.
Understanding the varied cultures of the world is essential in promoting peace. These treasures also exemplify the religious and philosophical understanding between Taoism, Buddhism and Confucianism that was useful in unifying China.
Glendon is searching for people with good contacts with major museums throughout the USA. For more information contact:
