This year marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relation between China and Uruguay. To celebrate the ties, an exhibition featuring artworks of Uruguay's Guarani people was unveiled at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing on April 20.
The 158 showpieces include 18 Baroque Guarani-style sculptures, 43 pieces (sets) of traditional Mbya-Guarani folk artworks, and 85 pieces (sets) of contemporary folk art-works. Many crafts were made from wood, bark, fur and even pumpkins.
"The cultural exchange keeps on narrowing the distance between the two nations. The exhibition provides a window to Chinese people to know the life of Uruguayan people in the past 400 years," Wu Weishan, director of the museum, said.
