To adapt the work requirement of Zuojiang Huashan rock art’s successful application of world ICH and to further promote relevant studies of Zuojiang rock art, the Branch Four of The Research Department of GXMN went to do rock art survey and data collection work in Ningming and Chongzuo from Aug 22-26, 2016.
Through this survey, relevant materials and photos of twenty-five rock art sites in Ningming and Longzhou had been collected. They also finished the checking work of villages along the river and rock art sites with the instructions of two rock art experts, i.e. Zhu Qiuping, Head of Ningming Cultural Relic Institute and Wu Xiaohua, staff of World ICH Application Office of Chongzuo. Thus, they got to know relatively accurate distribution information of rock art sites and villages, which provided new approaches for the rock art study and database construction work. Based on this, rock art sites which were fit for sample collections had been selected, which was to prepare for the cooperation project of Rock Art Dating with Australia.
