Inspired by the colored figurines of musicians from the Tang Dynasty (618-907) collected in the Henan Museum, the performance recounted the scene of playing Pour Cup Music, which was included in the songs of the Imperial Music Office of the Tang Dynasty.

At the back of the scene, we can see the 1,500-year-old Gongyi Grottoes Temple, which is located at the foot of Dali Mountain in Gongyi city of Henan province, and is one of the large grottoes excavated by the royal family of Northern Wei Dynasty (386-534).

In the temple, there are 18 pictures of the emperor and the empress worshipping the Buddha, which are the only ones left in the country and considered national treasures.

The video was provided by the All-Media Marketing Planning Center of the Henan TV station
