Symbolic cultural and economic exchange

During the expedition

With regard to the historic Silk Road, the expedition will behave like a caravan of old merchants carrying symbolic goods in the form of commemorative plaques presented at major conferences. This attraction project is a symbolic reference to the commercial and cultural exchanges that took place through the Silk Road.

The project consists of 7 components: commemorative plaques and the element connecting the plaques into one consistent whole.

Each plaque represents one country in the shape of a quadrilateral, being a self-sufficient element. By applying the plates to each other and to the connecting element in the correct order, one full commemorative plaques is created.

An additional symbolic motif is the support and co-operation of the countries in expedition project organization and the Silk Road as a historic element connecting the countries on the expedition route.

For the purpose of this attraction were developed 3 designs of plaques of various forms and complexity. The visual representation shown in the picture shows the project that has gained the most popularity and will be used during the expedition.
