WANGDA SHOWCASES won the museum showcase project for Khitan Museum of China

We are delighted to announce that according to the final report from the evaluation committee,  we are honored to win the museum showcase project for Section 3 of Khitan Museum of China. The project amount is totalled CNY 13,908,800.00 and WANGDA SHOWCASES will customize all the museum display cases in accordance with the highest international technology and quality criteria of dedicated museum showcases for all the 4 exhibition halls(Sun Khitan hall and historic culture hall in floor 2, hall of frescoes fine arts of  Liao Dynasty and hall of fine arts of Pagoda art in floor 3) ) for such a renowned historic museum to get the prosperous Khitan civilization reappeared to the public.

The Khitan people (Khitan small script: , Chinese: 契丹; pinyin: Qìdān) were a Para-Mongolic nomadic people from Northeast Asia who, from the 4th century, inhabited an area corresponding to parts of modern Mongolia, Northeast China and the Russian Far East.

The history of the Khitans dates back to the 4th century. The Khitan people dominated much of Mongolia and modern Manchuria (Northeast China) by the 10th century, under the Liao dynasty, and eventually collapsed by 1125 (or 1211).

Originally from Xianbei origins they were part of the Kumo Xi tribe until 388 when the Kumo Xi-Khitan tribal grouping was defeated by the newly established Northern Wei. This allowed the Khitan to organize and consolidate their own tribe and entity which led to the beginning of Khitan written history.[1]

From the 5th to the 8th centuries the Khitan were dominated by the steppe powers to their West the Turks and then the Uyghurs. The Chinese also came from the south (Northern dynasties or Tang). In some cases they were under Korean domination (from the East, mainly Goguryeo) according to the balance of power at any given time. Under this triple domination the Khitan started to show growing power and independence. Their rise was slow compared to others because they were frequently crushed by neighbouring powers—each using the Khitan warriors when needed but ready to crush them when the Khitans became too powerful.[2]

Enjoying the departure of the Uyghur people for the West and the collapse of the Tang dynasty in the early 10th century they established the Liao dynasty in 907. The Liao dynasty proved to be a significant power north of the Chinese plain as they were continuously moving south and West and gaining control over former Chinese and Turk-Uyghur’s territories. They eventually fell to the Jin dynasty of the Jurchen in 1125, who subordinated and absorbed the Khitans to their military benefit.[2]

Following the fall of the Liao Dynasty many Khitans moved further west and established the state of Qara Khitai. Their name survived in the Russian word for China (Китай, Kitay) as well as the archaic English (CathayPortuguese (Catai) and the Spanish (Catay) appellations of the name. They have been classified by Chinese historians as one of the Eastern proto-Mongolic ethnic groups – the Donghu (simplified Chinese东胡族traditional Chinese東胡族pinyinDōnghú zú).
