Impressions of hands and feet that appear to have been made by two children about 200,000 years ago may be the earliest work of human art, according to an international team of geologists and archaeologists. But if they are works of art — even art made in play — then they are more than 100,000 years older than the earliest-known cave paintings. They are also some of the earliest handprints found anywhere in the world, although some known footprints are older. “Hand prints are relatively rare because there is simply less opportunity to leave behind a handprint during routine activities,” he said. Zhang et al / Science BulletinThe motif of the human hand links the prints at Quesang with later cave paintings.

BEIJING, Aug 19 (Reuters) - China on Thursday marked the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Tibet Autonomous Region on the roof of the world, with a call to accept the rule of the Communist Party. Beijing has ruled the remote western region since 1951, after its People's Liberation Army marched in and took control in what it calls a "peaceful liberation". Most leaders after Mao forbade the practice, although under Xi's rule, his solo portraits as well as those with him and four previous leaders have been placed extensively in Tibet. Beijing brands the current Dalai Lama, exiled in neighbouring India, as a dangerous separatist and instead recognises the current Panchen Lama, put in place by the party, as the highest religious figure in Tibet. As a mark of the party's rule over Tibetan Buddhism, Wang presented the Panchen Lama with a commemorative plaque at the ceremony.

China is broadening a political education campaign as it celebrates the 70th anniversary of its control over Tibet. Asked who his spiritual leader was, a monk at Lhasa's historic Jokhang temple named Xi. "The posters coincide with a massive political education programme which is called 'feeling gratitude to the party' education," said Robert Barnett, a Tibetan studies veteran scholar at the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies. Photos of the spiritual leader are now strictly banned, according to rights groups and Tibetans who have since left the region. The foreign ministry repeated China's position that the Dalai Lama was "attempting to separate Tibet from China."

REUTERS/Thomas PeterChina will uphold the leadership of the Communist Party in Tibet to further its economic development, and guide Tibetan society in accordance to socialism, the region's top official said on Saturday. The Dalai Lama fled Tibet in 1959 following a failed uprising against Chinese rule. "First and foremost we must uphold the leadership of the Communist Party of China," said Tibet's Party Secretary Wu Yingjie at a news conference in Beijing. "Since the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951, everyone has discovered that only with party leadership can Tibet continue on this road of prosperous development," Wu said. China has rebuffed attempts by the CTA to reopen a dialogue since 2010, and Beijing maintains that the Dalai Lama is a separatist.

In 1959, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama fled into exile, following a failed uprising against Chinese rule. The CTA and Tibetan advocacy groups have received a boost in international support amid rising criticism of China's human rights record, particularly from the United States. Tsering reiterated that when the 14th Dalai Lama passes he will only be reincarnated in a "free country", according to his wishes. "Why are they so concerned with the 15th Dalai Lama?" "The 14th Dalai Lama is still living and he wishes to go to China ... the Chinese government leaders need to learn about Buddhism first."

REUTERS/Thomas PeterSHANGHAI (Reuters) - The head of the Tibetan government in exile has visited the U.S. White House for the first time in six decades, a move that could further infuriate Beijing, which has accused the United States of trying to destabilise the region. Lobsan Sangay, President of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA), was invited to the White House to meet the newly appointed U.S. Special Coordinator for Tibetan Issues, Robert Destro, on Friday, the CTA said in a press release. Tibet has become one of the areas of dispute between the United States and China, with relations between the world’s two biggest economies at their lowest point in decades. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Beijing in July of violating Tibetan human rights and said Washington supported “meaningful autonomy” for the region. Beijing officials have since accused the United States of using Tibet to try to promote “splittism” in China.
