What kind of beauty leaves the world in such awe? In Chinese history, there was a period that was brief, mysterious, and infinitely inclusive—the Northern Qi dynasty.

This era saw a great cultural amalgamation and ethnic integration, with agrarian and steppe civilizations permeating each other, leaving behind countless brilliant relics.

Among these, the tomb murals are particularly dazzling, representing time buried deep underground and vividly painted history on the walls. They preserve cultural information on religion, rituals, customs, architecture, clothing, music, painting, and more, as well as little-known aspects of ancient people's spiritual world and life.

Today, let's follow the footsteps of an American Gen Zer and step into the Taiyuan Northern Qi Dynasty Mural Museum to experience the marvelous civilization from 1,500 years ago!
