123. 中国 唐代 银鎏金盒一对 内含古兰经及佛经

A pair of gilt silver boxes with one box containing 2 booklets inscribed with Koranic verses (No. 1 of 2) and the other box containing a book inscribed with Buddhist Mudras and four Chinese characters "大悲手印" (Da Bei Shou Yin) [The Great Compassionate Mudras] on the front of box cover (No.2 of 2) [See No. 183 for No. 2 of 2].

China, Tang Dynasty (AD 617 to 918)

(No. 1 of 2) Koranic Verses:

Height: 17.6 cm Width: 23.4 cm

*N.B. This pair of artifacts found together symbolises veritable inter-faith tolerance and harmony that existed during the glorious Tang Period which brought people of different races, religions, cultures and beliefs together along Silk Road for trade and cultural exchanges in peaceful co-existence and prosperity. In the present divided and polarised world, the message of peace, harmony, open trade and prosperity is still ever so important. Under this one heavenly sky, we are really no different from one another and no reasons for conflicts, wars and violence.

* 注:这对文物象征着盛唐时期各宗教之间的宽容与和谐,也反映了当时不同种族、宗教、文化和信仰的人们在丝绸之路上进行贸易和文化交流并和睦相处共享繁荣。在当今分裂和两极分化的世界中,和平和谐以及开放式贸易和繁荣的这份信息仍然如此重要。在这一片天空之下,你我其实毫无分别,也因此无须存在着任何分歧,战争和暴力。
