Last I came to the Wangu Building of Lion Mountain, in the first floor of this ancient building, there are eight large painted murals, I was attracted by these murals, the Naxi people i have not heard before, came to Yunnan after the discovery of the unique culture here. There are also in the ancient city to see the hieroglyphics of Dongba, these special hieroglyphics added color, these Dongba characters are more beautiful.

This time in the Ancient House to see the mural is also very special, colorful rituals, dance folk proverbs, with these pictures and so on to show, plus colorful colors, the whole picture is vivid, lifelike.

The Dongba painted frescoes inside this ancient building are based on the Naxi Dongba classic book "Genesis", a total of 7 pictures, respectively, showing the beginning of chaos, the flood, cultivation and breeding, marriage to the heavenly daughter, the beautiful life of the human world and other human creation and reproduction process. Here's a unique human history, let's see the 7 murals here! Below is a text introduction to the murals of the Vanguard Building.




The first picture: "Ploughing Map": In ancient times, heaven and earth were connected. A pair of sacred birds laid a white egg and hatched nine brothers with infinite contribution and Seven Sisters with incomparable wisdom. They separated heaven and earth together and created the human homeland. Since then, people have lived a happy life with white deer as farm animals and tigers as mounts.

The second picture, "Flood Map": As human beings hacked down mountain forests and polluted water sources, they angered the gods. The gods sent down floods, which nearly wiped out human beings. Only a young man named chongren, who was instructed by the gods because of his kindness, survived in a yak-skin-sewn leather drum. In order to re-develop human beings, the gods instructed chongren to find beautiful and kind heavenly daughters. However, he was tempted to marry a beautiful demon woman and gave birth to bears, snakes, frogs, trees and other strange creatures. Therefore, Naxi people believe that all things are spiritual and all things in nature are related to human beings.

The third picture: "Love Picture": Chongren leaves the demon woman and meets Tiannv Lin Heng Bao Bai. The two fall in love at first sight and have a mutual affinity. However, the father's consent is still needed to get the heavenly daughter, so the heavenly daughter became a crane and took lilien to the 18th floor of the sky to propose to the gifted father. the father did not agree and set up many difficulties to spite lilien.


The fourth picture: Test Picture 1: The gifted father asked Chongren Delin to cut down 99 forests in one day, sow seeds in 99 mountains in one day, and collect all the seeds in one day.

The fifth picture: Test Chart 2

The sixth picture: the picture of returning to the world: chongrenline and tianlv returned to the world with the dowry sent by the father-gold and silver jewelry, cattle, sheep and horses.

The seventh picture: the picture of worshipping heaven;
