Exhibition's images highlight a devotion to the land and a unique way of living, Lin Qi reports.

Works of arts and crafts are hugely popular in bringing people living on different continents together. In 2018, an exhibition was held at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing to unfold the cultural richness of the Guarani people, one of the indigenous groups of South America.

In collaboration with the Museum of Pre-Columbian and Indigenous Art, in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, the exhibition was well-received among those who attended for vividly presenting Guarani's distinctive customs and lifestyle with a display of wood carvings, woolen objects and dyed pieces.

Now the two museums have mounted another exhibition in Beijing to celebrate Uruguay's ethnic diversity, showing photos depicting the life and spiritual world of the gauchos, a group of nomadic people known for their skills of keeping and herding horses and living a free, colorful life.

Titled Gauchos, the exhibition running through May 8 gathers signature works from a series on gauchos created by Uruguayan photographer Luis Fabini.
