The Feast of ­Beauty: Yunnan festival ­culture exhibition

Southwest China's Yunnan Province is abundant in diverse cultures of multi-ethnic groups. 

With the theme "The Feast of Beauty," a new exhibition that introduces Yunnan's festival cultures has debuted at the Yunnan Museum in Kunming.

The show displays over 60 pieces of ethnic cultural relics and photographic works that captured scenes of different ethnic festivals. 

The exhibition includes seven sections such as "bless from the heaven," "farewell to the old year" and also "drinking and singing for happiness." 

Such themes prove an interesting fact that people in the province celebrate festivals all year around, and also reflect Yunnan people's life-loving personality. 

Festival culture reflects the unique regional culture of all ethnic groups in Yunnan and maintains the ethnic identity and community connection of ethnic members. 

The show is scheduled to end on February 14, 2023.
