Jakarta, in the present day, is a modern city with skyscrapers and modern buildings dominating its vertical and horizontal landscape; millions of cars, motorcycles, and people moving along and crossing the streets signifying the life of the city; and the chorus of the honks of the vehicles, the shouts of the street peddlers, beggars, street musicians composing the rhythm and rime of the city. Then, try to freeze this 'modern' temporality and spatiality and travel backward in time-space to other timelines and spatiality of this city; to the times when this city was known as Sunda Kalapa, Jayakarta, and Batavia -to the time when it was entitled 'the Queen of the East'. As we move along in time and space travel, we will find that this city was created and developed as the hub for cultural, economic, and political transaction across nations, the hub of transnational and global 'cultural flow'. When we unfreeze the time, and look back again to the present timeline, to the current status of the city as one of the modern cities, where can we find that part of historicity and identity brought about by the past cultural flow? Is it frozen, confined, and trapped in the notion and materiality of cultural heritage? Or is it alive and made visible in the cultural practices of the people of the city and embraced as the part of their identity?

The questions led me to follow de Certeau 'walking in the city', and headed to The Jakarta history Museum and Glodok business district, both are located in the Old City of Jakarta. Located at the centre of Fatahillah square; the area of cultural heritage, Jakarta History Museum is the best example of how the collections related to the past and identities of Jakarta are preserved and then how the notions and ideas about this past are narrated and projected toward the present. While, Glodok business district area, which is also an Old China town in this city, provides me with the example of how the notion of heritage and identities are being exercised and enliven by the people in contrast to the narrative provided by 'the official point of view', as this area is the place and space where cultural transaction among people occurs. The result of this flaunerian walk, is these lion pictures [1] 

On my curiosity, I 'googled' and found the information about these lions. One article in Wikipedia mentions that:

They are believed to have powerful mythic protective powers that has traditionally stood in front of Chinese Imperial palaces, Imperial tombs, government offices, temples, and the homes of government officials and the wealthy from the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220). Pairs of guardian lions are still common decorative and symbolic elements at the entrances to restaurants, hotels, supermarkets and other structures, with one sitting on each side of the entrance, in China and in other places around the world where the Chinese people have immigrated and settled, especially in local Chinatowns. (Chinese guardian lions)

Two important points I can take from this explanation: 1) the buildings where these lions stand (a|government offices,论文英语论文网提供整理,提供论文代写英语论文代写代写论文代写英语论文代写留学生论文代写英文论文留学生论文代写相关核心关键词搜索。
