The “Gate” travels back to the farming life scenes of the ancient city of Qujialing more than 5,000 years ago. It artistically displays the world’s earliest wheel-made black pottery technology and the country’s earliest spinning wheel weaving technology, creating an immersive stage effect of traditional culture + modern technology. .
In addition, the Shaanxi folk song “Tall Buildings Rise from the Ground”, the unique stunt “New Farmers and New Power”, and the Guizhou song “Happy Guizhou Family Portrait” link the Yangtze River culture and the Yellow River civilization, using the same jade dragon unearthed from multiple ancient city sites as a lead.
