Artist's Description

Part of the gardens of the Huaqing Hot Spring or Huaqing Palac at the northern foot of Mt. Lishan in Lintong County, 30 kilometers from Xian City.

It has an intriguing history of 6000 years inckuding a romantic love story of Emperor Xuanzong (685-762) and his concubine Yang Guifei in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) and treachery of the Xi’an incident (December 1936) The kidnapping of the Chinese leader CHIANG KAI-SHEK while visiting disaffected Manchurian troops at Xi’an. Chiang was captured by conspirators headed by Zhang Xueliang, who attempted to force him to give up his campaign against the communists and lead a national war against the Japanese, who had occupied Manchuria in 1931.The bullet wholes can be still seen today…

Hopefully my image captures the former !
