Distribution of tickets for "Peace and Harmony - The Divine Spectra of China's Fragrant Harbour Exhibition" starts on September 14
**************************************************

     Jointly presented by the Chinese World Cultural Heritage Foundation and the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the "Peace and Harmony - The Divine Spectra of China's Fragrant Harbour Exhibition", featuring aloes of sacred scripture and related artefacts, will be held from mid-October. Admission is free and tickets will be distributed from September 14 (Wednesday).

     As the most valuable wood species on earth, aloe, also known as agarwood, appeared in the Old Testament and has been used in incense, essential oil, art pieces and ornaments as well as medicine.

     This exhibition brings you the story of agarwood, and its relationship to world religion and culture. It is also of special significance to Hong Kong given the city's name, which in Chinese means "Fragrant Harbour". On display at the exhibition are different grades and species of agarwood. Many exhibits also include exquisite carvings, furniture and decoration items, and fragrance resins including frankincense and myrrh, together with essential oils and perfumes and the utensils that go with them.

     The "Peace and Harmony - The Divine Spectra of China's Fragrant Harbour Exhibition" will run from October 13 to 29 from 10am to 8pm and on October 30 from 10am to 6pm at the Hong Kong City Hall Low Block Exhibition Hall.
