I visited The National Museum of China in Beijing in last September. This museum to me is the brand statement about China’s history from its government perspective. Huge building, but not charming ! However, with your passports or Chinese ID cards, you can enter to this museum free of charge. You shall pass through strict procedure as if you were boarding to somewhere by airplane. Hilarious, but feel safe.
Free admission to the National Museum of China is somehow about the attitude. If you would like to introduce something to the complete strangers, then giving to others first would enhance the further opportunities. Believe me, you shall end up buying souvenirs at its tempting museum shop any way. Or you will sit at the tea room having traditional tea or a cup of green tea ice cream after a long exploring day.
Today, I would like to share with you the selected African Sculptures instead of starting with Chinese things as you might expect. Why? At present moment, I find African sculptures more lively and more friendly for my mood. Each face shows a bit of emotions and characters. It was nice to spend some peaceful moments looking at African sculptures and wondered what artists had in their mind when they did all this !
The best points of this exhibition are the mutual cooperation and the free admission. I find this as the super awesome approach for introducing what you’d like to share to the world. Connecting a dot with the completely new strangers for free !
