作品简介

Entry:
China has always intrigued me. It’s a country rich with historical roots, unique culture, and an ever-growing emphasis on modernization. For one who has yet to visit, the diversity that stretches across the expanse of this country gives off an air of mystism that seems only to be characteristic of ancient civilizations. Two of the monumental icons that represent this country, the Great Wall and the Pearl Tower, seem to coincide with this photo of two adjacent dragon boats. One is older, more traditional and simplistic in design, while its counterpart is newer, gilded and elaborate. These two reoccurring visuals of old and new represent a dualism that I’ve found. Part of the intrigue of China comes from its history as a once abundant, ancient civilization, to a current contender in the race for modernity. Throughout its history and speedy growth though, traditionalism and cultural heritage have never lost their place. The Chinese seem to value tradition just as much as they embrace change and development. Both are equally respected, significant and expected. Such a seamless blend of the two is something seen in strong societies. The stance of the two dragon boats holds the same ideals. It shows that the two are on par with each other and are weighted equally, and that belief stretches from individuals and families, to the entire nation as a whole. For a person who is new in China and  had regarded it as a land of intrigue, one of the most important and apparent understandings I’ve gained can be seen within the simplicity of this picture, as it encapsulates the very lifestyle that is lived and breathed by China’s renmen.
