Ye Xingsheng, honor head of the Tibet Musuem and research of the China Tibetology Research Center, is working at the Tibe Pavillion of Shanghai World Exop.

Ye Xingsheng, honor head of the Tibet Musuem and research of the China Tibetology Research Center, is intensifying the color of the painting "Tashi Delek".

People will be treated with an exquisite large-scale Tibetan fresco showing new and happy life of the emancipated Tibetan people at the Tibet Pavilion during the coming Shanghai World Expo.

The fresco called "Tashi Delek" is adapted from the one being displayed at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing for nearly 30 years.

Designed by the well-known Chinese collector Ye Xingsheng, who is also artistic advisory of the Tibet Pavilion, "Tashi Delek" displayed at the Great Hall of the People was finished painting in 1985 with five-years joint efforts from Han, Tibetan and Hui artists.

With 71 Tibetan characters, 49 animals and some 100 Tibetan auspicious patterns and festive articles painting, a strong feature of Tibetan Losar runs through the painting.

The painting was inscribed by the deceased Ngapoi Ngawang Jigme in Tibetan language.

"January 1, the leading group of Tibet Pavilion invited me to Shanghai to direct the work to enlarge the fresco," said Ye Xingsheng while having interview with China Tibet Information Center in Beijing.

Ye pointed out the whole picture of the fresco displayed at the Great Hall of the People will be showed at the Tibet Pavilion with partial important details being enlarged.

Ye said: "As it judged as a milestone of Tibetan fresco art, the fresco has been showcased in the Tibet Hall of the Great Hall of the People for 30 years. It reflects the high spirit and mental outlook of the emancipated Tibetan people."

"This is why it will be showed at the Shanghai World Expo,"he added.

Two paintings named "Night of Festival" and "Mother and Child Sentiment" will be hung opposite to the entrance of the hall while a three-meter-long and two-meter-wide one describing the scene of dancing and drinking highland barley wine, will be exhibited on the right wall.

Ye Xingsheng, also research of the China Tibetology Research Center, told the journalist:"Figures displayed are prototypes of local Tibetan people. The painters have their pencil sketches and photos."

The fresco is produced against the background of the Potala Palace, snowy mountains, auspicious clouds, and holy lakes.

In the center of the painting there shows people jubilating Tibetan Losar: Tibetan women are holding a torch in their hands to expel the evil; people are sitting around to eat Gutu, a kind of traditional Tibetan food for Tibetan Losar and traditional dances are performed. On the right side, elders in the animal husbandry are singing Zhegar ballad with people dancing, drinking and presenting hada scarves around him.

Tibet Pavilion for Shanghai World Expo with the title of "Heavenly Tibet" is to open on May 1, 2010, focusing on displaying the new Tibet, new life, new development and new changes in the region.
