Wei-Jin Art Gallery
Situated in the desert 18 km northeast of Jiayuguan city, Wei-Jin Art Gallery is not really an art gallery, but ancient tombs with wall paintings. There are more than 1400 tombs, which could date back to 220-419 AD during Wei and Jin periods. Most tombs belong to different families, housing bodies of three or four generations, and now only Grave 6 and Grave 7 are open to tourists.
All the murals were painted and well-preserved on the bricks. One single brick may have one painting, or half a brick does, possibly several bricks constitute an interlink painting. The painting contents are from all aspects of actual life. Then visitors can know well about people’s life at that time. These paintings also provide valuable materials to study the society civilization of that period.
