2021 No.1
Event: RPCAA Public Lecture
The online lecture "Jewels of Resplendence: Treasure from the Himalayas" was presented by Professor Xu Xiaodong on 19 March 2021. 258 people on WeChat and nearly 100,000 people on Weibo joined the event.

The lecture was organized in collaboration with the exhibition, “Jewels of Transcendence: Himalayan and Mongolian Treasures”, that was on tour in the Jinsha Museum. The lecture examined the exhibits, artefacts, and drawings. By studying Himalayan jewellery, clothing and its patterns, Professor Xu illustrated the Himalayas' devoutness to their religious beliefs. It is a perfect integration between spirituality and materialism, a seamless combination of the sacred and secular world.

The lecture not only introduced the craftworks of Himalayan jewellery and adornment, but also the origins and meaning of the gemstones used. It reflects that despite being the Roof of the World, this snowy mountain range still managed to interact with neighbouring regions and exchange goods, technology, and personnel.
