Considering the special geographical environment of Minqin and the landmark significance of the whole theme park, the sculptures are all made of GRC, stainless steel, carbon steel plate, cast iron and cast copper for the purpose of long-term preservation. With these sculptures, a part of the desert is built into a cultural tourist attraction.

"It's my great honor to contribute to this unique desert sculpture park,"said the famous Spanish sculptor Susso, who participated in the the exhibition with his work,The Column of Heaven. He said that Minqin provides opportunities for artists from all over the world and opens up new ways for them to be recognized and recognize each other.
