【云上岭南】An exhibition showcases the love of Chinese expatriates for China!
An exhibition displaying letters and remittance certificates sent by Chinese expatriates to China recently kicked off at the Guangdong Overseas Chinese Museum. Titled “Patriotic Passion, Over Mountains and Seas - Guangdong Qiaopi History and Culture Exhibition”, the exhibition showcased the deepest love of overseas Chinese people for their families and China. The word “Qiaopi” in the title refers to both the letters and the remittance certificates sent by overseas Chinese to their families in Guangdong and Fujian in the 19th and 20th centuries. A “Qiaopi”, aka “Yinxin”, is composed of an envelope, personal letters, remittances, and replying letters. Each “Qiaopi” records the strenuous efforts of the old generation of overseas Chinese and their profound love for their hometown and the motherland and embodied the credibility and integrity of the Chinese nation. #artandculture
