As 2024 unfolds, the two sides will continue to launch more collaborative products, contributing to the continuous inheritance and promotion of excellent traditional Chinese culture.

This Chinese character “fu” was written by Emperor Kangxi (r. 1662-1722) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The calligraphy “fu” engraved on a stone tablet is now well kept in the museum’s garden as the most precious treasure of the museum.
