About this artwork
Artist Siyuan Ma illustrates the Shanhua Temple, located inside the ancient city of Datong in Shanxi ProvinceÐa key cultural relic under state-level protection. Shanhua Temple is a relatively complete group of buildings from the Liao and Jin dynasties, says Siyuan. The staircase guides the viewer to the entrance of a dignified yet humble Chinese temple. He aptly captures the grand and rugged style of the historic landmark.
