About this Item

The exhibition consists of several individual but interrelated elements. The dragon - the most important of four heavenly creatures in Chinese mythology and one of the most widely and variously used Chinese symbols - is a figure that recurs throughout this exhibition project. It appears in different shapes, indoors and well as outdoors. Most spectacularly, there is a gigantic flying kite, in the shape of a dragon, from the lawn of the museum?s sculpture park. Before the dragon kite is launched, it is fitted with gunpowder, which at a given time is ignited and explodes, transforming the dragon into a crackling, fire-breathing creature. A portfolio of sixteen separate photos from the Qiang exhibit accompany this book. , Danish/ English, Year1997, Illust. B/W10, Illust. Color16, ISBN 8790029178, Code 3039.
