When the City Federation of Trade Unions moved, it was found to contain 1 stone seat, 2 stone lions and other cultural relics.
(Reporter Wang Bin) On January 18, the Municipal Federation of Trade Unions and the Yuanmingyuan Management Office signed a cultural heritage donation agreement, and donated 8 pieces of Qing Dynasty stone carvings discovered during the relocation of the Municipal Federation of Trade Unions to the Yuanmingyuan Collection.
The Beijing Youth Daily reporter learned that over the years, the three No. 3 hospitals of the Taiwan-based factory have been the offices of the Beijing Federation of Trade Unions. "At the end of last year, according to the arrangement of the municipal party committee and municipal government, the city's General Union of Trade Unions moved to the city's sub-center as a whole. In the process of preparation for the relocation, we found two stone lions, a set of five stone carved benches and a stone seat, suspected. It is the scattered cultural relics of Yuanmingyuan. We immediately communicated with the Yuanmingyuan Management Office.” Guo Feng, Director of the Office of the Municipal Federation of Trade Unions.
In December last year, Yuanmingyuan Management Office invited experts from the Municipal Cultural Relics Bureau to conduct on-site appraisal. After identification, 8 stone carvings are Qing Dynasty cultural relics, including 1 stone seat, 2 stone lions, 1 piece of Lu Chendun, 4 stone piers, and the other 4 pieces are imitation stone drum piers, all of which are in the garden. It is furnished, but it is not a relic of Yuanmingyuan. "We hope that they have a better preservation environment, so we want to actively donate to professional cultural relics protection agencies, invite professional organizations to collect and conduct research, and hope that more public can appreciate these cultural relics." Guo Feng said.
Liu Weidong, a researcher at the Beijing Museum of Stone Carvings, said that although the donated cultural relics do not fall within the scope of the Yuanmingyuan's scattered cultural relics, the stone carving styles donated are similar to the existing stone carving styles in Yuanmingyuan, and are closely coordinated with the stone architecture and garden environment. The Exhibition of Yuanmingyuan is a very suitable choice, and there is no sense of contradiction between the two."
The office before the relocation of the Municipal Federation of Trade Unions is the former site of the French Barracks in the building complex of the Dongjiaomin Alley. Experts speculate that these stone carvings may be carried by foreign troops from other royal palaces and manors in the late Qing Dynasty.
Li Xiangyang, deputy director of the Yuanmingyuan Management Office, said that Yuanmingyuan will carry out proper protection and further research on the cultural relics donated, and understand the cultural relics culture of the Qing Dynasty and present them to tourists in due course.
