Drawing inspiration from popular painting styles during the Song Dynasty 
period, the event featured eight segments, each highly representative of life 
during the era, namely:

-Blue Sky After Rain 
-Playing the Chinese Zither Under Brightly-lit Windows 
-Engraving Memories 
-Enjoying Flowers and Drinking Tea and Yellow Wine 
-Fragrances of the Song Dynasty Era 
-Perfumed Clothes and Gorgeous Hair - Song Dynasty High Society Ladies 
-Leisure and Elegance 
-Enjoying the Charm of the Song Dynasty

On the day, 'Song of the Seven Sons', a collection of patriotic poems which has 
come to represent Macao's return to China, was played on the Chinese zither in 
the ancient Zhe School style. Additionally, a cute Peppa Pig was printed using 
the block printing method popular during the Song Dynasty period. There were 
also flowers on display arranged in Southern Song Dynasty celadon pottery. All 
these elements combined to ensure the culture of Song Dynasty Charm in Hangzhou 
instantly found a home within the context of Macao's urban style.

Other integral elements that traveled along the Maritime Silk Road on ships 
connecting Hangzhou and Macao were on display including an ancient method of 
restoring pottery, a bird cage made of imperial gold using the wire inlay 
technique of the Southern Song Dynasty, and imperial yellow wine reproduced 
exactly as it was made in the past. These are all part of the history of Song 
culture and highlight the fact that elegance has always been important 
everywhere.

In the second half of 2021 in Hangzhou, the Bureau plans to further explore the 
meaning and promote the new brand, Culture of Song Dynasty Charm, by hosting 
the 'Hangzhou Style Life of Song Dynasty Charm' and the 'Su Dongpo Culture 
Festival', in tandem with the launch of 'Workshops of Hangzhou Culture' which 
is an experiential lesson in the charm of the Song Dynasty.
