    "Compared to watching performance, it is also novel to see Tibetan opera from the scroll." Tundrup, a resident of Lhasa City, said while admiring the painting. The painting exhibition of the "World's Longest Pen Drawing Themed on Tibetan Opera" was held in Lhasa City of Tibet Autonomous Region on the afternoon of October 13. 

     

    Tibetan opera was listed in UNESCO'sUnited Nations EducationalScientificand Cultural Organizationrepresentative list of intangible cultural heritage in 2009. Huang Jialin, the painting's writer, said that the pen painting themed of Tibetan opera could be regarded as the inheritance of Tibetan traditional culture.

    According to Huang Jialin, the pen drawing was 27.42 meters long and took more than a year to complete. During his creation, he went to Tibetan areas to collect materials, read relevant documents and exchange with Tibetan opera performers. This work covered the depiction of characters, Tibetan opera costumes, masks, dance movements, jewelries, etc.. 

     

    Sara·Tsewang Rinzin, the curator of the exhibition, introduced that the painting was equivalent to "living fossil" of Tibetan culture and art. It could provide a basis for the study of Tibetan opera lovers and researchers at home and abroad.

    It is very unique to display Tibetan culture through this form of the painting, which has brought new thinking for strengthening the protection and inheritance of the excellent traditional culture to Tibetan ethnic groups. In next step, Tibet will continue to explore the scientific, historical and artistic value of intangible cultural heritage, forming an intangible cultural heritage's protection and inheritance system that is dominated by the government and participated by the whole society.
