  • Sanxingdui BronzeLocated in the city of Guanghan in northern Chengdu Plain, Sichuan Province, Sanxingdui is the ruins of a prehistoric culture dating back 4,800-2,600 years. It is considered the origin of the Yangtze River Civilization and an outstanding manifestation of the zenith of Chinese bronze civilization. Myriad artifacts have been excavated from Sanxingdui, most of which are bronze. In sharp contrast to the bronze ware discovered in the Central Plains, Sanxingdui bronze features distinctive local characteristics and a strong flavor of wizard culture, clearly exemplified by an astonishing group of standing human statues and masks. These cultural relics are evidence of the political and religious power of the Shu, reflecting the spiritual values and social characteristics of the ancient kingdom ruled by religious authority. This discovery is unparalleled in the world’s history of archaeology. The life-size standing figure unearthed from Sanxingdui's No.2 sacrificial pit, measuring 262 centimeters with its pedestal, is larger than any other contemporaneous bronze figure found so far in the world. Dressed in a dragon robe, the enigmatic character stands on a high base in an awe-inspiring manner. Some archaeologists have asserted the figure's identity as a combination of god, wizard, and king, or the most authoritative leader, symbolizing the highest religious and political authority.

  • Liu Sanjie

    Liu Sanjie, the third sister of the Liu family, is a legendary folk song singer of the Zhuang people. Her story has become widely known in Guangxi and a lot of places in the south of the “Five Ranges.” According to legend, Liu Sanjie lived in a Zhuang village of the Tang Dynasty (618-907). She spoke eloquently and had a melodious voice. A local rich man called Mo Huairen coveted her beauty and talent, wanting to have her as his concubine. He sent three educated men, trying to beat her in antiphonal singing, but to no avail. Because Liu Sanjie and her beloved A’niu met under a big banyan tree and vowed to live together for a lifelong time. Later, Mo Huairen colluded with the corrupt local government, forbidding people to sing folk songs and trying to arrest Liu Sanjie, who then jumped into the pond, rose to heaven on a carp and became an immortal. The story of Liu Sanjie who sang for freedom and fought for dignity reflects the Zhuang people’s pursuit of truth, goodness and beauty in their long song-loving tradition.

  • Red FootprintsEver since its establishment, the Communist Party of China (CPC) had united and led people of all ethnic groups throughout the country in struggling hard for 28 years to realize national independence, the liberation of the people, and the founding of the People's Republic of China. An astonishing and magnificent epic in the human development was written on this ancient land of China where the CPC has left their glorious footprints. Jinggangshan, a mountainous city at the central section of the Luoxiao Mountains in western Jiangxi Province, was the first revolutionary base established in the rural areas. During the period from the autumn of 1927 through early 1929, Mao Zedong, Zhu De and other CPC leaders implemented the thought of "armed independent regime of workers and peasants" in the base area, kindling the spark of the Chinese revolution. The struggle in the revolutionary base explored the correct development path of the Chinese revolution, and Jinggangshan has thus been recognized as the cradle of the Chinese revolution.

  • 70th Anniversary of "Talks at the Yan'an...

    The year 2012 marks the 70th anniversary of "Talks at the Yan'an Forum on Literature and Art" (hereinafter referred to as "Talks"). In May 1942, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) held a forum on literature and art in Yan'an, Shaanxi Province. At the forum, Mao Zedong made a conclusion speech, which clarified the orientation of "(literature and art) serving the broad masses, particularly workers, peasants and soldiers." As an important theoretical document, the "Talks" carried forward the essence of left-wing literature while establishing a new democratic culture. It creatively solved the problem of popularization and nationalization of literature and art since the May 4th Movement. Its statements regarding the orientation of "serving the broad masses, particularly workers, peasants and soldiers" and the practical principle "social life is the only source of literature and art" have remained dynamic in theory and instructive in practice.
