A special exhibition featuring the lifestyle of Taiwan will be held at the Busan Museum in South Korea as part of the government's effort to enhance bilateral relations between the two countries.
A total of 160 pieces of cultural relics collected by the Taipei-based National Museum of History will be on display at the special exhibition titled "Formosa: Taiwan, Life and Culture” to present the history, culture and lifestyle of Taiwan.
The exhibition is comprised of five major sections - Prehistory of Taiwan, Taiwanese Aborigines, History of Taiwan, Lifestyle of Taiwan, Culture of Taiwan and Historical Artifacts of Taiwan - that will display Taiwanese folk art works, painting, calligraphy and traditional Taiwanese glove puppetry.
Religious statues such as Guanyu, Matsu and Wind Lion God will also be displayed at Busan to present the diversity of folk mythology in Taiwan.
The two-month exhibition will not only introduce Taiwan's geographical landscape, history, population structure and culture, but also provide a platform for cultural dialogue between Taiwan and South Korea, thus meeting people's needs for cultural diversity and satisfying their curiosity.
"Formosa: Taiwan, Life and Culture” will run from Oct. 8 tillDec. 1. More information can be found at Busan's English-language tourism website here.
