    Look at your jades and semi-precious stone accessories. They are simple, natural, and traditional.

    Few of us have come to think that they connect us with the past. But they do.

    They tell us what the ancient jade and stone craftsmen found in the natural world. We very much learnt from what they found.

    We tell a short story of their findings in this exhibition, through which we hope to honour our craftsmen.
