Medical School of Cultural Relics in China
The Palace Museum in Beijing is working with colleges to build China's first "medical school of social relics" and create an ability to ensure and reestablish national memorials, says Song Jirong, national political counsel and deputy executive of the historical center.
The historical center presently includes a conservation focus, the Hospital for Cultural Relics, with 23 logical and testing research facilities, 16 rebuilding rooms and 161 expert restorers, as indicated by Song, who is the director of the center.
The Commendable Efforts
The relics will experience logical conclusions to record point by point observations of their arrangement, unique use, harm, rebuilding history and preservation techniques. The museum's new year presentation, exhibiting antiquated imperial Spring Festival conventions, is right now in plain view, with a record number of about 1,000 displays.
Named as a "medical school" for relics, the task will be driven by the Palace Museum in organization with a few prestigious universities, expecting to address the deficiency of experts able in fixing and reestablishing relics, said Song Jirong, leader of the restoration workshop of the Palace Museum, otherwise called the historical center's "medical clinic" for relics.
Song expressed his views in her ability as an individual from the thirteenth National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, the nation's top political warning body, on the sidelines of its yearly session.
The Palace Museum, also called the Forbidden City, is the previous supreme royal residence of two sequential dynasties that go back around 600 years. It is currently the nation's best-known museums and houses more than 1.8 million bits of relics. The museum's rebuilding workshop, which Song headed, was set up in 2016. It has the country's most-exceptional rebuilding equipment and specialists.
However, doctors are less in numbers as compared with 1.86 million culture relics (sets) handled in the world's largest museum and more cultural relics across China. There will be a need for the doctors for relics according to the tasks.
The primary purpose of introducing such cultural medical school is to preserve the cultural relics for a long time as well as catering to the needs of such experts who will be a specialist in this kind of profession. This becomes our responsibility to protect these cultural relics with the several generation efforts, she concluded.
