National treasures can only be viewed from afar?
For this year’s 518 International Museum Day, the Museum of the IHP has designed all-new “Befuddling National Treasures” eight-piece slide puzzles, allowing you to first observe from a distance, then get in close to piece them together and ultimately bring everything together. As long as you dare to face the challenge, the national treasures shall let you put them together! Those who are fast enough can even participate in our “Befuddling National Treasures, Puzzling under Sliding Pressure” timed competition limited throughout May. The top three from the event period will be awarded with their very own MIHP National Treasures Notebooks!
The MIHP has selected five cultural relics that have been declared “national treasures,” namely the Monthly and Seasonal Records of Military Supplies from the Kuang-ti South Platoon in the Yung-yüan Era, Bronze Square Cauldron with a Deer Emblem, Sculpture of a Standing Owl, Pole Ornaments with Two Owl Heads on Opposing Sides, and Jade Decorative Piece of a Crested Human Head, and has incorporated them into eight-piece slide puzzles to assist participants in understanding the appearance of the artifacts as they (de)construct their structure by sliding the tiles, deepening their impression of and arousing interest in the objects. As part of our series of activities for the 518 International Museum Day, a competition which ranks contestants based on their completion time will be held for a limited period of time, aiming to bring participants closer to our national treasures and add the fun of competition. For 518, national treasures and puzzles have been pieced together to form “Befuddling National Treasures, Puzzling under Sliding Pressure”!
