Venue: Asian Civilisations Museum, 1 Empress Place, Singapore 179555
Date: Wednesday, 28 October 2020
12:30 pm:¬† Tang Shipwreck guided Tour (Meeting point at the Museum ticket office)
Our guide L√≠a Santis De Emes, a volunteer docent of Friends of the Museums, will take us 1100 years ago, to discover the treasures of this Arab ship that sank off the shores of Sumatra. The ceramics and vases discovered are invaluable as they prove the existence of a maritime silk road from China to Iraq. She will help us explore the luxury objects coveted by the European aristocracy and learn how the Chinese created objects that mixed various cultural influences to make them more attractive to international buyers.
1:30 – 3 pm: Lunch @ Empress
