These tens of thousands of rock carvings left by ancient nomadic tribes could be dated back to 6,000 years ago. These rock carvings about animals, human, the sun, plants, religious motifs and many other items are painted with various styles and profound connotations. Helanshan Rock Carvings are not only considered as artistic works left by ancient people, they are also precious materials for us to get to know the history, culture, economy and customs of the ancient nomads of northern China.
