Giant sarcophagus discovered in Guangxi that is still immortal! The owner of tomb "became a mystery" and left a thousand-year legacy
Many people are like me, especially they like Tomb Adventure or Treasure Hunting and Decryption movies and series which have become very popular in China in recent years Ghost Blowing Lamp, as well as Tomb Notes series that keeps pace with it, have received unanimous praise from netizens and viewers, and related product peripherals are also very popular. .
There are also similar games, and original books or audiobook series in app have also become very popular. Personally, I love Ghost Blowing Lamp series, and a few more are being updated. forward.
In fact, since beginning of film industry, same type of films, similar to treasure hunt in an ancient tomb, has played a very important role in history of cinema, and many scenes have been preserved scenic spots, such like very classic Raiders of Lost Ark series, Mummy series, Tomb Raider series, etc., which have been released for many years. Today, many still revisit it from time to time.
Compared to United States, this kind of film in China comes out a little later and is largely limited to film's special effects, but a great tomb adventure film has also recently been released in China. In addition to series, there are National Treasure series recorded in China, all of which are deeply loved by audience.
Why this type of film has become popular, I think there are several reasons, firstly, modern people are full of curiosity and mystery about ancient tombs, unlike modern people The method of burial is simple and clear, and there is nothing to look at. Ancient people, especially dignitaries, devoted their lives to finding a place for burial after death. Feng Shui and place were very specific.
Besides, tomb is huge, it contains a lot of funeral items, many unexpected treasures and institutions, plus some different customs and cultures between our and foreign countries, such as the ancient culture of Egyptian mummies< /strong> fascinates future generations and wants to know.
Another point is that these tomb robbery movies are not all imagination, they are all embellishment and fact based creation. We cannot understand and speculate on degree of development.
So many films take advantage of this and complement it to suit hunting psychology of people. In addition, for example, domestic films such as various vassals and burials mentioned in "Ghost Lantern Culture" are things that can be studied in history, so reworked and created based on the existing film plots will cause people strong curiosity. world to satisfy my adventurous spirit and desire to explore.
In contrast to design of ancient Egyptian pyramids, tombs of ancient Chinese emperors and generals, as a rule, are directed downwards. With exception of seal, tombs will be exposed. Most of main buildings underground palaces< , exist underground, complemented by Shinto, etc., and underground palace is huge and magnificent, which are also several major components of Chinese tomb tradition.
The name of tomb is also different. According to social class and official title of owner of tomb, imperial tomb is usually called a mausoleum, noble tomb is usually called a tomb or tomb, and common people are those called tombs.
Chinese archeology is also vast and deep, such as Sanxingdui in Sichuan province, which is currently on fire, and so on, all of them attract with exquisite craftsmanship over thousands of years and some cultures that are still has not been explained. , and today in Suizhou, Hubei Province, there is such an ancient tomb that is amazing. This is tomb of Marquis Yi Zeng.
Marquis Yi Zeng's tomb is large. First of all, number of funerary items can reach more than 15,400, including a large number of bronze items, well-preserved calligraphy and paintings, various statues and ancient musical instruments, on which can still be played today, which makes people stop and admire, which shows that during his lifetime he had a prominent position and a rich family; p>
Furthermore, a well-preserved set of bronze bells of exquisite craftsmanship and most complete set of bronze bells discovered so far, called Zenghouyi Chime Bells, were found in his grave. The reason why it is so precious is because of its exquisite craftsmanship, it can be called top of Chinese bronze craftsmanship among excavated pottery at present, which shows its preciousness.
The most amazing thing is coffin of owner of tomb. The ancient Chinese usually have two layers of burial when they are buried. basically made from wood as a carrier.
Marquis Yi Zeng's tomb has over 2,400 years of history Active drawing.
The coffin is very large. At time, excavation process used two cranes to work together, but coffin had to be opened on site and lifted separately to push it out of underground palace.
The discovery of Marquis Zeng Yi's tomb has led people to discuss his identity. He was originally a prince during Warring States period, but there is no record of him in history. If his tomb was not opened by subsequent generations, we will lose many precious cultural relics, as well as a piece of dusty history.
