Service Description

In 1972, Unesco, the United Nations (UN) agency for education, science, and culture, adopted a convention for the protection of significant world cultural heritage. The problem was that there was an inherent injustice from the start: in comparison to Africa and Asia, Europe had a disproportionately high number of items on the protected list. Unesco adopted a convention in 2003 to 'preserve the intangible,' and many developing-world countries rushed to have their traditions included on the official list. China became an early ratifier of the 2003 UNESCO Convention for the Protection of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2004. Oral traditions, performing arts, social practises, and knowledge and skills related to traditional crafts are all examples of intangible cultural heritage (ICH). It is a community-based culture that has been passed down from generation to generation and has been adapted to remain relevant in today's society. "There is a Chinese proverb that says intangible cultural heritage (ICH) is the homeland of our spirit." We know where we're going with ICH." Yang Zhi explained that he is the director of the International Training Center for UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage in Asia. What exactly is "intangible cultural heritage"? How do we safeguard 'intangible' concepts like technologies and traditions? The question that had to be asked was whether ancient, inanimate stone is truly worth protecting from a broader human perspective. Chinese scholars' rocks, also known as scholar stones or viewing stones, are naturally occurring or shaped rocks that Chinese scholars have traditionally valued. Scholars rocks can be any colour, including contrasting colours. Scholar rocks can also vary in size and weight, weighing hundreds of pounds or less than one pound. The rocks of Chinese scholars influenced the development of Korean suseok and Japanese suiseki. Many stone collectors and precious collection owners attended the Shanghai Great World Intangible Cultural Heritage of original ecological series exhibition.
