Ancient Chinese history is largely a legendary collection of mythical lore and annals written centuries after they occurred. These takes about Chinas beginnings reveal the heroic figures and rich storytelling traditions of Chinese culture including: Pangu opening heaven to save the earth from chaos Nuwa creating man and repairing the vault of heaven Fuxi fixing the calendar by observing the heavens Shennong creating agriculture Cangjie inventing writing thus creating the basis for Chinese culture. Fragments of these myths and legends are found in Chinese paintings, wood artifacts, relief carvings, and lacquer art which are illustrated in this book along with informative text. Anyone interested in Chinese culture, philosophy, history, or art will find this collection a must-have volume for their bookshelf.
