ATHENS under armour phenom proto trainer sale , May 31 (Xinhua) -- A rare ancient Chinese porcelain dish exhibited at the Benaki Museum in the Greek capital is giving local visitors a taste of Chinese history as the two countries celebrate their cultural exchange year in 2017.
Painted with enamels in red, green, black and yellow, the porcelain dish that was made in Jingdezhen in southeast China, most probably in the 17th century, depicts a scene with an emperor and a burnt book in front of his feet under armour speedform gemini sale , George Manginis, member of the Executive Committee of the Benaki Museum, told Xinhua in a recent interview.
"The emperor is Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China, and the book burning refers to a passage by the historian Sima Qian that tells how the emperor ordered all the books of philosophy, history and poetry before his time to be burnt under armour scorpio 2 ," said Manginis.
The historical scene depicted on a porcelain plate is very unusual, he said, adding that the history refers to the clash between Confucianism and Legalism.
"This dish is extremely rare, probably unique because no such scene is ever depicted on porcelain," Manginis said.
"It is an interesting comment on politics which happens on a very simple object," he added.
Perhaps best known in the West for his giant mausoleum in Xi'an guarded by the life-size Terracotta Army under armour scorpio black , Qin Shi Huang's legacy includes standardizing China's units of measurements and the currency and unifying the country in the third century B.C.
Calling the China-Greece cultural exchange year "a very important landmark year," Manginis noted that every Greek museum and cultural institution is making an effort to contribute.
The Benaki Museum has an extensive Chinese collection, donated by George Eumorfopoulos, one of the most important experts on Chinese civilization. The Benaki Museum is participating in the cultural exchange year by holding exhibits with pieces from its Chinese art collection.
The gradual evolution of Chinese ceramics, from the third millennium B.C. up to the 19th century A.D., is represented by more than 1 under armour scorpio sale ,300 objects of the highest quality, all of which attest to the magnitude of China's contribution to the cultural history of humankind.
"We are exhibiting a different object every month for free near the restaurant area of the museum, so that everybody that comes to the museum and even people who do not pay admission can come and see parts of our Chinese art collection," Manginis told Xinhua.
The aim is to introduce Chinese history and culture to as many Greeks as possible, he added.

LIANG Shanshan considers herself a mother of two: one child is her biological son under armour scorpio , the other is a 16-year-old Chinese teen pop star she has never met.
She is a "mother fan" and part of a group of women in their mid-20s to 60s whose maternal instincts are set off by China's boy band sensation TFBoys("The Fighting Boys").
The band has won millions of Chinese followers since their 2013 debut, rapidly amassing a following ardent enough to buy a giant ad in New York's Times Square for a band member's birthday.
Liang insists her feelings are no fleeting fancy: just like a real mother, her devotion to TFBoys' singer Roy Wang (Wang Yuan) is unwavering.
"Our fandom isn't shallow," she explains, adding: "I intend to follow him through his entire career."
While tween fans are attracted to the teenagers' boyish good looks, Liang and her friends are drawn to their cherubic personas and wholesome values http://www.underarmourshoeoutlet.com/ , with songs that explore the trials of growing up ("Practise Book for Youth," "Imperfect Kid").
Some, like 24-year-old Yang Andan, even make annual pilgrimages to Wang's hometown of Chongqing in southern Sichuan province.
"The more I learn about (Wang), the more I like him," Yang said.
Liang's family has embraced her fandom. Her four-year-old refers to TFBoys as his "big brothers cheap under armour shoes ," and her husband accompanies her to concerts to see Wang, describing him as their "kid".
Anthony Fung, a Chinese University of Hong Kong professor who studies pop culture, said this trend of mothers who "worship young idols" began with teen stars of Korean dramas, which are hugely popular in China.
TFBoys are "quite Korean in aesthetic", he pointed out under armour shoes outlet , adding that so-called mother fans are "repeating the same kind of relationship where they will follow an idol... from the beginning to the end".
"They love that kind of healthy, cute boy image," he explained.
Nearly a quarter of TFBoys fans are at least 30 years old -- double the band members' age, according to a survey by Chinese media giant Sina.
Fung says in some cases the obsession with TFBoys is a symptom of empty nest syndrome.
"The older fans may have kids who are grown up, so now they're looking for someone else to be at the center of their attention," he said.
Affluent Chinese women under armour shoes on sale , many of whom have only one child to spoil, are more than happy to splash out on their celebrity kids.
To celebrate the birthday of TFBoys member Jackson Yi (Yiyang Qianxi) in November, fans flew a cake-shaped hot a
