Upon entering NUO Hotel Beijing, guests are greeted by one of NUO’s honourary art consultant Zeng Fanzhi’s most monumental art pieces for the hotel, the 5.03-metre tall sculpture entitled “Le Shan”. It is Mr. Zeng’s homage to a line from one of the essays of renowned Ming Dynasty-era intellectual and historian Zhang Dai who, in recalling blissful memories spent with his beloved grandfather in Shaoxing, China, said “The door opens on a view of mountains; the window opens on a view of water”.
Alongside Mr. Zeng’s majestic masterpiece, ten 2.24-metre tall porcelain vases stand as splendid sentinels in the lobby, in direct tribute to the time when such porcelain from the ancient kilns in Jingdezhen, China, were considered the pinnacle of beauty and exquisite artwork, prized by emperors and exported all over the world.
