"The Adventures of Shanhaijing," an art exhibition that takes people on a magical journey into the fantasy world of the 4th century Chinese classic, browsing the pages in an innovative way, has opened at Guangfulin Relics Park in Songjiang District.
"The Classic of Mountains and Seas", also known as "Shanhaijing," is a classic Chinese text and a compilation of mythic geography and beasts. It is a fabulous geographical and cultural account of pre-Qin China, as well as a collection of Chinese mythology.
The exhibition replicates the world in the classic via light and shadow displays, presenting a fresh immersive culture experience for visitors.
With nearly 10,000 sculptures featured, 447 mountains depicted in the classic are replicated in the exhibition, presenting a visual feast for visitors.
The beasts, trees, and tribal ancestors are vividly showcased in sculpture as well.
There are also interactive walls, offering an innovative way to read the text.
The Guangfulin Relics Park, about 4 kilometers from Sheshan Hill, is a window shedding light on the city's rich culture and ancient history.
The park was built on the original archaeological site that was discovered in 1958.
It is widely known as the "root of Shanghai" and an ideal site at which to explore the city's culture and history.
