Artist's Description

Daxu Ancient Village, Guilin, Guangxi Province

Daxu Ancient Village is located to the southwest of Guilin, on the shores of the tourist-beaten Li River. First built in the Qin Dynasty, over 2,000 years ago, Daxu Town began to flourish during the Ming Dynasty when it became the commercial centre of the area.

Main sights here include stone-paved streets, Wanshou Bridge (Longevity Bridge), many ancient buildings and the century-old dock. Along the river stands many well-preserved buildings from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. These wooden structures, with colorfully decorated eaves and elegantly carved doors and window frames, are still homes for many locals.

A stroll around will afford a leisurely glimpse into the traditional courtyard where grandmothers are sometimes seen telling stories to a huddle of small kids.
