Detail: Among all kinds of ancient Chinese craftsmanship, goldworking techniques are less well-known. The research project “Ancient Chinese Gold Techniques” is a collaborative effort of Art Museum of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shaanxi Institute for Preservation of Cultural Heritage, the Conservation Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of Hong Kong, and the Master Studio of Chow Tai Fook, for the first time to use interdisciplinary research methods to reconstruct several major ancient goldsmithing techniques and the history of the development.
