The Silk Road Landscape Map is a map of the sacred hand scroll painted in a green landscape style, with a total length of about 30 meters and a width of about 0.6 meters. The hand roll once flowed overseas, and was finally acquired by Mr. Xu Rongmao and donated to the Palace Museum to become a collection. According to the research of scholars, "Silk Road Landscape Map" is the court painting of the Jiajing period of the Ming Dynasty, which was made by the Emperor. The map depicts the vast area between Jiayuguan, Gansu, and Mecca, Saudi Arabia, with more than 200 names, reflecting China's clear understanding of the Silk Road along the 16th century. "Silk Road Landscape Map" has important historical significance. In addition to presenting the full length of the hand roll over 30 meters to the audience, this exhibition also uses multimedia projects to present the life scenes of people along the ancient Silk Road. In the exhibition, you can learn about the characteristics and style of green and green landscape painting, as well as the design of your own style of green and blue landscape paintings. Or through a variety of interactive exhibits and models, you can learn about ancient Chinese and modern tools and techniques for mapping. At the same time, the exhibition also displayed a number of maps of China and Hong Kong drawn in different periods from the 16th to the 20th centuries, allowing you to understand the Chinese and Western perceptions of Chinese geography and the functions of various maps.
