——Exhibition Overview——


Part I. Ascending


"Grand and lofty are the mountains, with their large mass reaching to the heavens." 


The Central Plain of China is largely flat, with only a small number of mountains standing up against the skyline. The ancestors, regarding those mountains as miracles, showed their respect and worship. As humanism developed and after people paid visits to various mountains, these became closer to people. Besides, visits to mountains were also found helpful to open one's mind. "When reaching the great peak (of sacred Mount Tai)/ we hold all mountains in a single glance." The sense of awe in this utterance is clear.


From worshiping mountains to climbing mountains, humans underwent a change of mind, being transformed from understanding mountains to understanding themselves. Human's feelings towards mountains, although differing from person to person, are all unlimited and hard to let go, just like the various perspectives artists adopt in landscape painting - namely, the "three distances of horizon, depth, and height". "The Five Mountains", as the landmarks of five famous and much-visited places of China, created a strong and lasting warm feeling.
