中国最著名的存世古画之一,很罕见的《步辇图》周二在北京首都博物馆展出了,将在那里展出两个月。The 1.3-meter-long scroll painting, also known as Emperor Taizong Receiving the Tibetan Envoy, is generally believed to be painted by Tang Dynasty (618-907) artist Yan Liben, but it is also speculated to be a facsimile from Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127) of Yan’s original work.这幅1.3米长的卷轴画,展现了太宗皇帝接见西藏使者的场景,被认为是唐朝(618-907)艺术家阎立本的作品,但也被推测是北宋时期(960-1127)对于阎立本原作的临摹。The work, now part of Beijing’s Palace Museum collection, records the close connection between Tang Dynasty and Tibet.该画作现在是北京故宫博物馆藏品的一部分,记录了唐朝与西藏之间的紧密联系。The masterpiece is among the 200-odd items at the ongoing exhibition in the Capital Museum - Tibetan History and Culture - that gives a panoramic view of the region’s religion, early history, crucial status on ancient trade routes, and many other fields.该杰作是首都博物馆正在展出的200余件展品之一,“西藏历史文化展”可以让人全面了解该地区的宗教、早期历史、在古代贸易路线中的重要地位以及许多其他领域。Many exhibits are borrowed from key temples and religious sites, like Jokhang Temple and Potala Palace in Lhasa, in the Tibet autonomous region.许多展品是从重要寺庙和宗教场所借来的,比如西藏自治区拉萨市的大昭寺和布达拉宫。Jokhang Temple was hit by fire on Feb 17,but the fire was soon put down,and no cultural relics were damaged.大昭寺2月17日发生火灾,但火迅速被扑灭,未造成文物损坏。The exhibition in Beijing is to run through July.此展览将持续至七月底
