Hotan Jade Stone is formed on the snow line of Kunlun Mountain at an altitude of more than 5000 meters, which is hidden in the harsh geological environment. It has been weathered, metamorphosed, crust, acid etching, wind, frost, rain and snow all the way down, stumbling, sharpening and tenacious. Falling on the riverbank, after millions of years of exposure to sunlight, rain, and wind and frost, it becomes a mountain stream and water falls into the river channel. For many years, day and night, this mixed effect of time changes and geological forces makes it increasingly warm, delicate, transparent, and ripe.

Qishi is an ornamental stone characterized by natural beauty. Its own naturalness, that is, no one processes, modifies or carves it, is one of the most important standards that distinguishes it from other ornamental stones; Hotan Jade has the most spiritual aura. Rather, it has never left the Han culture. It is because of its cultural roots that Hotan Jade has flourished for thousands of years and has never left us.
Qishi is a precious treasure left by nature that is difficult to regenerate. Qishi collection has been popular in China for a long time and has formed a Qishi culture based on Qishi as a carrier. Stone was originally unintentional, and the various cultural matrices formed by humans have added humanistic strength and color to it, reflecting the rich cultural connotations of humanity.

Contentment and Joy
People's pursuit of the natural way of heaven is perfectly reflected in landscape painting. A landscape painting brings people spiritual enjoyment and soul vibration, far surpassing flower and bird painting and figure painting.
The artistic conception is a characteristic of landscape painting, with a pursuit of "realm" from emotion to character. Painting landscape emphasizes the importance of "imitating nature", focusing on creating and elevating the environment. Both painting and watching the painting should be present in the environment, and develop towards a deeper level of aesthetic activity. Firstly, one should be close to nature, return to nature, and integrate with nature, achieving a new level of subjective and objective world and constantly advancing with the times, which is called novelty. The second is to subtly immerse oneself in the profound realm of true, divine, and wonderful realms, cultivate sentiment, purify the soul, and achieve the sublimation of spiritual realm!

Qingshan and reef rocks are static, while waterfalls and clouds are dynamic. The sparkling water surface combines motion and stillness.
