Traditional Chinese flower arrangement has a long history. Regarded as a cultural essence of historic, artistic and cultural value, it was inscribed on the national list of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2008. Six types of containers, namely plate, vase, cistern, bowl, tube and basket, known as the “six major containers for Traditional Chinese flower arrangements”, are used in traditional Chinese flower arrangements as tools. They play a vital role in the overall composition of the arrangements, highlighting the theme and strengthening the artistic concept. Exhibits in the show are provided by the Macau Academy of Flower Arrangement Designers and themed around the six major types of traditional Chinese containers. This showcase of traditional Chinese flower arrangements allows visitors to take a closer look at these works and acquire a better understanding of its cultural value.
