China’s Finest

Great Wall of China


 

The Great Wall of China is a series of stone and earthen fortifications in northern China, built originally to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire against intrusions by various nomadic groups.

Chinese Painting


Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. The earliest paintings were not representational but ornamental; they consisted of patterns or designs rather than pictures.

Chinese Dragon Dance



Dragon dance (simplified Chinese: 舞龙; traditional Chinese: 舞龍; pinyin: wǔ lóng) is a form of traditional dance and performance in Chinese culture. Like the lion dance it is most often seen in festive celebrations. Many Chinese people often use the term “Descendants of the Dragon” (龍的傳人 or 龙的传人,lóng de chuán rén) as a sign of ethnic identity, as part of a trend started in the 1970s.

Chinese Musical Instruments

The eight categories are: silk, bamboo, wood, stone, metal, clay, gourd and hide. There are other instruments which may not fit these classifications. This is one of the first musical classifications ever.

Chinese Poetry

Chinese poetry is poetry written, spoken, or chanted in Chinese language, which includes various versions of the Chinese language, including Classical Chinese, Standard Chinese, Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese, Yue Chinese, as well as many other historical and vernacular varieties of Chinese language; or, in other words Chinese poetry refers to poetry written or spoken in Chinese language.
