Wonderful events for winter - Ice & Snow Festival

p>Hā’ěrbīn’s main claim to fame these days is this festival. Every winter, from December to February (officially the festival opens 5 January), Zhāolín Park (照林公园) China vacation deals and Sun Island Park become home to extraordinarily detailed, imaginative and downright wacky snow and ice sculptures. They range from huge recreations of iconic buildings, such as the Forbidden City and European cathedrals, to animals and interpretations of ancient legends. At night they’re lit up with coloured lights to create a magical effect.


It might be mind-numbingly cold and the sun disappears mid-afternoon, but the festival, which also features figure-skating shows and a variety of winter sports, is Hā’ěrbīn’s main tourist attraction – and prices jump accordingly.


The festival takes place in multiple locations. The main venue, Harbin Ice and Snow World and the Snow Sculpture Art Exhibition are both held on Sun Island . The Ice and Snow World exhibits are held in the west end of the island on the north bank of the Sōnghuā River Yangtze River tour. They are best seen at night, so note that a daytime ticket (good from 9.30am to 1.30pm) does not grant admission to the venue at night.


The Ice Lantern Venue Student tours to China is held in Zhaolin Park and many consider it the least interesting venue. If you do go, again, get along at night when the lanterns are lit.


Taxis are expensive and often hard to flag down during the festival times but you can ride horse carriages, or even use your own feet: the Sun Island venues are actually reachable by crossing the frozen Sōnghuā River (plan on one to two hours). Note that prices for the festival have been skyrocketing recently so don’t be surprised if they are even higher than quoted above.

Beijing Travel Guide - Wan Fung Art Gallery

The Beijing Wan Fung Art Gallery China travel deals is an arts company whose purpose is to develop Chinese culture, exhibit the works of outstanding contemporary artists, and promote international art exchanges. An exposition was held here recently, displaying the works of Yin Kun, Xin Yi, Xiao Se, Lao Dao and Li Chunyao, reflecting their individual characteristics and creativity.

Yin Kun, a talented and sensitive young artist, has a deep interest in everyday life experience, and attitudes towards reality. His works depict social indifference towards some typical phenomena, through which an in-depth meaning is revealed -- the conundrum of money. His frames function as a stage for his carefully designed characters and props on which to manifest behavioral art. Human figures are delineated in rose-red, while a gray background represents a false living space. Poor Children reflects his fervent wish that the false material world might change when innocent children open their eyes, as well as his yearning to save and protect children.

Xin Yi was born in Beijing China Educational tours in 1961, and began his career as a painter in 1991. As a distinctive painter brimming with creativity, his works evoke a strong feeling of innate vitality, as well as a natural and unsophisticated romantic spirit. Drawing on eastern culture and its pluralistic, abstract connotations and thought augments his inherent spirituality and develops these vitalized components, which he combines with modern esthetics to develop something entirely new. With a plain and unsophisticated heart, he tries to experience the vitality, as well as the beauty of nature, and use his unique method to express these aspects through vivid depictions of life in the big city, thus radiating an inner yearning beyond its noise and bustle.

Xiao Se, a professional painter, was born in Beijing in 1970, and was selected a new prominent Chinese oil painting artist by Fine Arts Literature in 2000. He staged exhibitions of his oil paintings in 1998, 1999 and 2001, and his works are sought by galleries and collectors alike.

Lao Dao, a council member of the Xu Beihong International Arts Research Society, was born in Heilongjiang Province China tour videos in 1968, and graduated from the Xu Beihong Studio attached to the Central Academy of Fine Arts. Many of his works have been exhibited, and several dozen are currently held in private collections.

Numerous products of traditional Chinese culture, such as calligraphy, seals, silk, ancient coins, and ancient books, either in the original or their rubbings, have been extensively used by Lao Dao, combined with oils, to create distinctive works of irresistible fascination. Each of the overlapping and mottled pieces tell of the turbulent past, and ingenious combinations represent the excellence of Chinese culture, which, in turn, endows his works of art with its essence.

Li Chunyao was born in Hubei Province in 1975, and graduated from the oil painting department of Hubei Academy of Fine Arts in 1999.

City life is the predominant theme of his works, particularly its feeling of uncertainty, a common phenomenon in today's society. To raise common concern and find ways of confronting such perplexity, Li Chunyao has drawn from Fauvism and German Expressionism in his lavish use of vibrant colors and startling vitality, all of which evoke his inner thirst.

Proper protection of historical sites in Yangtze River area

Historical sites China tour deals are cherished because of their long-time cultural accumulations. But how to avoid losing their inside information during the process of moving these inscriptions? Li Hongsong, deputy director of Ancient Building and Historic Site Protection Center, expressed his own ideas. Cultural relics should not be protected by setting up monuments, but by prolonging their life in a scientific way, he said. The aim of protecting the Qutang Gorge stone inscriptions is not only to restore them but also to truly record the history in them. The new stone inscriptions, as one way of protection, should be integrated with the surrounding environment. He insists that higher requirements should be set for the site selection and restoration project.

According to Li, of the 13 pieces of stone inscription works, four will be cut out and relocated, four will be replicated and the other five will be carved artificially. The tablet carrying "Ode to the Resurgence of the Song Dynasty" will be cut out in whole piece and migrated to the newly built Three Gorges Museum in Chongqing China Educational tours.

Archaeologists, together with geologists and related engineers, investigated the gorges area several times, mapping, sampling, analyzing and calculating, for working out a plan to protect the cultural relics in the area. At last they chose a site 500 meters downstream from the original one for the replicas. It is a precipitous valley, composed of steep cliffs and gentle slopes. The cliffs rise as high as 200 meters, while the top of the slopes is also at an elevation of 180 meters. It, to a large degree, preserves the natural scenes and human landscapes of the original site. The conditions for replicating inscriptions are also great.

The migration of stone inscriptions puts forward harsher requirement for cultural relic protection. The most advanced way of cutting is employed, which causes little trembling in work and has little harm on the relics. Also, three-dimensional technology is used to project the original characters onto the new cliff wall. In the following step, experts will depict each piece of the works carefully. After repeated revision, craftsmen will carve them with chisels. When the whole work is completed, a new chalk wall measuring 190 meters long will appear on the cliffs on the Yangtze River Yangtze River tour again.

Li said that protection of stone inscriptions will be carried out in four ways: material collecting, protection on the original site, moving to other places or making replicas at the new sites, and displaying. Most inscriptions will be protected in the first two ways and few will be moved to other places, such as the carvings on the Chalk Wall and Niuweishi cliff paintings.

Water is a primary factor in the Three Gorges culture. The life, transportation and economy of the ancient people here are all closely related to water. For instance, the cliff painting at Niuweishi depicts the fishing life of ancient people. As fishermen often quarreled with each other over the ownership of fishing docks, they sometimes set up tablets beside their docks to mark the building process and ownership. With the development of water transport, commercial shipping became an important living way for the Three Gorges ancestors. As this area was rich in well salt, many people lived on the shipping of salt. A tablet in Fuling records such an event. The inscriptions also depict the dangerousness of the place. Many of them record events such as road and ship building, navigation route harnessing and compulsory ferry, notice of danger or praying for peace. Other inscriptions reflect the history and politics of the Three Gorges area China Photographing Tours. The "Ode to the Resurgence of the Song Dynasty" is one such example. The stone in Liugang showed military establishment of the Qing Dynasty in Yunyang County.

What should also be mentioned is the art value of these inscriptions: the poems of famous literary figures, rich styles of calligraphy and exquisite sculptures always remain an attraction to visitors.

Learn the history in Yangtze River area - Tomb Group of the Ba Aristoc

It is hard to believe that Xiaotianxi Village affordable China tours in Fuling, Chongqing, was the final rest place of the ancient Ba aristocrats of about 2,000 years ago.

In this small village built on a mound near the Wujiang River, with dozens of households, however, a large amount of bronzes and jade wares typical of Ba culture were unearthed. The findings are unparalleled in the Three Gorges Reservoir area, either in quality, diversity or amount.

According to Fang Gang, an archeologist with the Chongqing Cultural Relics Institute who was working at the site, the Xiaotianxi Village Ruins were found by accident in 1972. The village became famous overnight because of the bronzes found here. It was the first time that such abundant bronzes of the Ba people were found in the Three Gorges area. It coincided with the depiction in Records of the States South of Mt. Hua: “Most of the mausoleums of its (Ba’s) former kings were in Zhi.” Zhi refers to Fuling.

Between 1972 and 1993, four salvage excavations were conducted on the Xiaotianxi Ruins Yangtze River tour and cultural relics from nine of the tombs were collected and studied. In 1994, the Sino-Japanese Archaeological Physical Exploration Experimental Research Team employed the CT technology in exploring underground relics and received abnormal signals, so they guessed they might have found the mausoleums of the Ba kings. Meanwhile, numerous bronzes were unearthed. The most important of those, a set of 14-piece chime bells, is now preserved in the Fuling Museum.

Fang said that the current excavation has cleaned up 11 shaft tombs, ranging from the early Warring States Period to the early Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220). From these tombs, large quantity of bronze and jade articles were dug out. There were also two skeletons, including a complete one, and two Chu-style jade swords which were found for the first time in Ba tombs. From Tomb No. 12, archeologists unearthed the most diversified high-class bronzes. On the surfaces of kettles and vehicles, handicraft with inlaid silver filigree was witnessed; while on chunyu (a kind of ancient bronze musical instrument), dagger-axes, bells, Ba-style swords and spears, archaeologists found patterns such as hair bun, hand palm, clouds, tiger, boat and fish.

In a small tomb China Educational tours measuring no more than four meters long and two meters wide, a strange bird-shaped vessel was found one meter underneath the ground. The vessel has duck-web feet, cock’s nib and bird’s wings. Though many feathers have fallen off, the excellent workmanship stands out clearly. The remaining feathers show traces of finely polished nail-sized turquoises which were stuck on the bird’s body.

Were these mausoleums belonging to the former Ba kings?

Though among the findings from these tombs are chunyu and zheng, two musical instruments used by ancient rulers to call on their troops, and other high-class belongings, such as chime bells and jade swords, they were not items exclusively possessed by Ba kings. What’s more, the bird-shaped vessel in some way features the Central Plains culture. All the tombs are not in a very large scale, and most of them are of the middle and late Warring States Period. From these facts, Sun Hua, professor from the School of Archaeology and Museology of Peking University, concluded that the tombs should have belonged to the aristocrats who remained on the land after the Ba Kingdom was conquered by the Qin State, who later united China.

Then, where are the true mausoleums of the ancient Ba kings?
