The University Museum and Art Gallery’s collection of Nestorian crosses contains numerous mysteries. Discussion continues about their function, style and designs, as well as the historical and cultural aspects of the bronze ornaments. In this workshop, the instructor will speak about the story behind the mysteries, and participants will learn about the characteristics of the Nestorian crosses from a craftsman’s point-of-view, while getting to make their own pewter ornaments.

香港大學美術博物館這批景教銅十字藏品,時至今日無論其功能,紋飾以致文化歷史涵義都給世人留下不少謎團。參加者將學習和嘗試低溫金屬澆鑄技術創作圖章浮雕。由藝術製作者的思考方式和製作考慮的角色出發,探索景教銅十字的藝術特質和其謎團背後可能,引領大家回顧細味這段鮮為人知的藝術與文化歷史。
