For some, Guangzhou is the Asian Berlin. It is not surprising that the city formerly known as Canton is in full cultural swing, reflecting a true cosmopolitan spirit, evidence being the Face of God exhibition at the Guangdong Museum, one of Guangzhou's major institutions.
More than 100 masks and music instruments from Central Africa can be admired and most of these rare exhibits have never been shown in Asia. True testimonies to the long history of African art, from prehistoric to more modern times, these items give an insight into the rites and ceremonies of the culture of African peoples and beyond.
