Chinese artifacts put on Red List

THE International Council of Museums yesterday published the English and Chinese versions of the Red List of Chinese Cultural Objects at Risk in response to the central government's efforts to protect the country's artifacts.

The Red List was released during the 22nd General Conference of the ICOM, held at the Expo Center in Shanghai. It ends on Friday.

The list has been designed as a tool to assist museums, art and antiques dealers, collectors, and customs and law enforcement officials in identifying objects that have been looted and illegally exported from China.

It is the first time the ICOM drafted a list pertaining to China.

The list includes ceramics, sculptures, metals, folk objects as well as jade and semi-precious stones.

Objects on the list are protected by Chinese legislation that specifically prohibits their unauthorized export and sale.
