Recreational and Sports Activities Interpret “Wenwu Mount Song”

 “Unlike other New Year wood-block prints, the New Year wood-block print of Mount Song absorbs the characteristics of the Three Stone Inscriptions of Han Dynasty, and adopts slope lines so as to create more thick printed lines.” Geng Minsheng, inheritor of the Henan Province Intangible Cultural Heritage—New Year wood-block print of Mount Song, said to the journalist proudly while he was manufacturing New Year wood-block prints, surrounded by enthusiastic audiences. This is what the journalist saw outside the Gas Film Gymnasium in Dengfeng City yesterday. As one of the indispensable components of the 12th Zhengzhou China International Shaolin Wushu Festival (hereinafter referred as to “Wushu Festival”), the recreational and sports activities have set up a display platform for the local intangible cultural heritage, the Mount Song culture, etc., presenting wonderful and superb shows. According to the journalist, in addition to the New Year wood-block print of Mount Song, it was enriched with dazzling displays of wood carving, silk flowers, embroidery and other intangible cultural heritage projects of Mount Song on the scene of Wushu Festival, attracting the eyes of numerous guests from all over the world.

It is understood that the exhibitions of intangible cultural heritage projects held during this Wushu Festival are divided into two parts: traditional artistry and traditional art, with a total of more than 30 items, attracting nearly 5,000 visitors every day.

Apart from the exhibition of intangible cultural heritage projects, in order to invite the guests from all over the world to deeply feel the Mount Song culture and Shaolin Wushu, during the Wushu festival, Dengfeng City also held an array of Wushu performance in Shaolin Scenic Area and five urban parks for the citizens and tourists to experience Shaolin Wushu; besides, a series of activities such as the performances of Confucius worship ceremony, the Mount Song Yoga, the Shaolin Wushu, and the Tai Chi Chuan were held in Shaolin Scenic Spot, Songyang Scenic Spot and Zhongyue Scenic Spot.
