INTRODUCTION 简介 • ..The literati scholars of ancient times had a wonderful PURPOSE. 目的 • Is their original intent still today being Suitably honoured - everywhere? 适当的荣幸 • UNESCO have some China Gardens inscribed on the World Heritage List. • Perhaps the Season is upon us all to reconsider PRESERVATION needs. 保存需要

Wonderfully Purposed 奇妙的意向

WHAT IS @ RISK ? @风险是什么? • ..CULTURAL Heritage. 文化遗产。 Degradation & Misrepresentation. 降解及失实陈述。

Degraded and / or Misrepresented – Hopefully Not 退化和/或曲解 - 但愿不是

Additional Notes 其他注意事项 • How easy it becomes over time, for things to accidentally get lost or lost sight of: for example • Just as I have heard it said by virtuoso musicians, of wonderful Chinese traditional music talent - there are ancient Guqins still in existence today, however much has already been lost in the translation of ability to ' play,' these musical instruments; without the abilities of the ancient scholar musicians. • And China's original Punsai & Penjing art forms of further diminutive landscapes, have been borrowed, standardized and popularized as Japanese bonsai, to the extent, they are now incorrectly termed - [ even in their place of origin - China, as {Chinese bonsai } ]

WHY IS IT @ RISK ? 为什么是@风险? • ..Western Chinese Garden Representations – Increasingly being Constructed. • Construction Resources Pressured. • Cultural Interest Under Competition from Westernization. • Educational Uniformity Threatened. • Commercial Reciprocity – Other Nation's Greed & Ignorance. • Time & Unforeseen Circumstance.
