21-meter-long painting records Shehuo performance

Folk artist Dai Wanzhi shows his 21-meter-long painting which keeps a record of Shehuo performance in Daijia village of Xi'an, capital of Northwest China's Shaanxi province in the 1950s. Most Shehuo performances take place around traditional Chinese festivals, especially at temple fairs during Spring Festival and the Lantern Festival. The performance of Shehuo can be traced back to ancient rituals held by the ancestors of the Chinese people to worship the earth, which they believe would bring good harvests and fortune.
