  • SCULPTURE “RESISTANCE” AT THE LONG MUSEUM, WEST BUND, SHANGHAI @philakashi uses an analogy to explore and question the themes of political corruption and abuse of power. The sculpture represents the imprint of the Seal of the Mandate of Heaven - the most powerful seal ever carved for Emperor Kangxi, the longest-reigning monarch of China. The seal bears an inscription “Jingtian Qinmin ” which means "Revere heaven and serve the people”. This was symbolic of Kangxi’s legitimacy as it attests to the ancient Chinese philosophy that heaven grants authority to an emperor if he serves his people virtuously. “Jingtian Qinmin ” was one of the guiding principles of the Chinese imperial system #belgianartist #chinesesealscript #languages #crosscultural #thelongmuseum #westbund #philakashi #belgianart #eastmeetswest #sculpture #thelongmuseumshanghai #thelongmuseumwestbund
