Museum marks 10th Anniversary with Buddhist exhibition from China

An exhibition marking Buddhist artifacts from China booted off Wednesday in New Taipei City, marking the 10th anniversary of the Museum of World Religions.

Speaking in front of Premier Wu Den-yih and religious leaders from around the world, Dharma Master Hsin Tao, founder of the museum, expressed the hope that peace and harmony would continue to exist between Taiwan's different faiths.

The displays include items such as paintings, embroidered silk work from Tibet, ritual instruments and a unique statue from the Ming Dynasty that combines Chinese and Tibetan Buddhist art styles.

The New Taipei museum currently has a collection of over 4,000 Buddhist artifacts.

Beijing Capital Museum, opened in 1981, contains over 200,000 items from Imperial China and other Asian cultures.
