Surrounded by numerous mountains and vast deserts, Ningxia province lies the Loess Plateau and the Inner Mongolia Plateau, with the Yellow River winding through it. Shuidonggou Site in Lingwu City was an important Paleolithic site 30,000 years ago, with vestiges of bygone prosperity including the Xixia Mausoleum, grottoes, petroglyphs and the remains of the ancient Great Wall. Complex natural environments and a long history have endowed Ningxia with unique natural landscapes and marvelous human-made views, all of which explain why Ningxia is described as the Pearl of the Frontier. Among these remarkable features, the petroglyphs are especially surprising because of their crude but elegant and beautiful lines.
In stopping to admire these petroglyphs, visitors might be truly surprised by the fantastic imagination and enormous creativity of these ancient people, looking at them with reverence and heeding their ideas. They are inspired to understand the ancient history, perceiving how this culture spans the limits of time and place. Lines carved into stone are records of how perseverant and strong the ancient people were, and signify their keen love for and firm protection of life. As a result, heart and heart, life and life, both transcend historical limits, surpassing limits of time and place, connections, communication and clashes.
