Numerous positive comments were given to the ongoing 1st "Beauty of Tibet" Painting Contest Exhibition in the Military Museum of the People's Republic of China as tourists number exceeded more than 1,000 on October 29 alone.
With more than 50 pieces of opuses by painters in and outside Tibet, the exhibition displays the amazing scenery, folk-custom and religion of Tibet.
Zhang Husheng, a retired engineer of the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force said:"I knew Tibet through the old film called "The Serf" in the mid-1960s. I was shocked at the miserable life Tibetan people suffering from. When I was young, the famous Tibetan singer Cedai Drolma came to our school to give a lecture on her personal experience. Since then, I've kept an eye on Tibet."
"I haven't been to Tibet, but I know from various means that Tibet has undergone an astonishing change over the past decades. Tibet is a beautiful place. The exhibition inspires my desire to travel there," Zhang added, laughingly, while discussing with his friend Lv Yufu about the trip.
When looking around the exhibition hall, Lv Yufu took photo of every piece of painting with his mobile phone. He said:"I can't tell which one is the best, because each is a masterpiece."
Dai Wenbin, a retired soldier who visited Tibet in 1972, told journalist from China Tibet Online that the old Lhasa was quite different from what it is now. There was no railway at that time and the people there were living in an unenlightened society.
"I'm very excited after seeing the great changes in Tibet through the exhibiton. It is a wonderful insight into Tibet," Dai said loudly, his eyes were shining with excitement.
As reporter leafed through the visitor's book, the messages were unanimously positive.
A Tibetan visitor named Dagji wrote:"Thank you for all the painters. They draw the splendid landscape in my hometown.”
"This helps outsiders to form a correct view about Tibet. I really enjoyed the exhibition," wrote a visitor called Liu Lixian.
A student from Beijing No.80 Middle School named Li Ping said."It is worth seeing as it is a feast for eyes.”
She left a message on the notebook reading:"May Tibet become more prosperous."
The exhibition will wind up on October 30.
