Notice of Co-sponsorship of the "Birth of Chinese Civilization" Exhibition
March 1, 2011

As part of our cultural and social contribution program, Daiwabo Information System will co-sponsor the "Birth of Chinese Civilization" exhibition organized by the Yomiuri Shimbun.

This exhibition features fine articles unearthed in the Henan Province of China, and traces the birth and development of Chinese civilization. A tomb supposed to be that of Cao Cao - one of the heroes in the "Records of Three Kingdoms" - was discovered in the Henan Province at the end of 2009. Located in the middle course of the Yellow River running from the west to the east of mainland China, Henan Province is the birthplace of the Chinese Dynasty.

The exhibition consists of three themes: "The Birth of Dynasty," "The Birth of Technique," and "The Birth of Beauty." Together with the latest excavation results, more than 150 articles, including bronzeware, gold- and silverware, lacquerware, wall paintings, sculptures, and materials on letters, will be exhibited. Visitors can learn how various factors characterizing Chinese civilization emerged, and how they developed dynamically in Henan Province.

This is an exhibition on China from a totally new perspective.
