School of Chinese Medicine receives antique collection from Dragon Culture Charity Fund Limited

中醫藥學院喜獲「龍的文化慈善基金」捐贈古文物

The School of Chinese Medicine recently received a valuable collection of 21 pieces/sets of antiques and artifacts generously donated by the Dragon Culture Charity Fund Limited. The donated items are now on permanent display at the Dr and Mrs Hung Hin Shiu Museum of Chinese Medicine of the School of Chinese Medicine.

In recognition of the generous support from the Dragon Culture Charity Fund Limited to HKBU, the School of Chinese Medicine held a donation ceremony today (24 May). Officiating at the ceremony were Mr Victor Choi Wang-kuing, Founder of Dragon Culture Charity Fund Limited; Professor Roland Chin, President and Vice-Chancellor, HKBU; and Professor Lu Aiping, Dean of the School of Chinese Medicine, HKBU.

Speaking at the ceremony, Professor Lu Aiping said that the School has been dedicated to the development of education and research on Chinese Medicine, popularising the knowledge of Chinese medicine and benefitting the community through the provision of first-rate clinical services and quality Chinese medicine healthcare products. The Chinese Medicine Museum of HKBU plays an important role in fostering the development of Chinese medicine in Hong Kong. It also serves as a window through which the local community and people from all around the world can learn more about Chinese medicine, thereby making a significant contribution to enhancing Chinese medicine knowledge.
 
The donated items, which are related to Chinese medicine and with dates ranging from the Neolithic Era to the early 20th century, depict the close correlation between Chinese medicine and the daily life of the ancient Chinese people over the past several thousands of years. The collection includes a Ming dynasty gilt painted stone sculpture depicting the folklore of Sun Simiao riding a tiger and administering acupuncture on a dragon king, a Neolithic stone sculpture in the shape of a larva, some daily utensils dating from the Warring States Period to the Han Dynasty, a Han Dynasty pottery sculpture of a witch doctor, pottery stove for burial, a Ming Dynasty stone sculpture of the Old Man of the South Pole, and incense burners dating to the early 20th century.
 
Since its establishment in 2007, the Dr and Mrs Hung Hin Shiu Museum of Chinese Medicine (http://cmmuseum.hkbu.edu.hk/eng/intro.html) has been open to the public for free and attracts nearly 5,000 visitors per year. Over the years, the Museum received tremendous support from members of the public, with a cumulative total of more than 50,000 visitors as of today. It now boasts a collection of more than 200 exhibits, including among others a Ming Dynasty replica of a Song Dynasty bronze human figure that shows the acupoints. The generous donation from the Dragon Culture Charity Fund Limited is a valuable addition to the Museum’s collection.
