4. Han Meilin Art Museum, Yinchuan
When renowned Chinese artist Han Meilin first visited Helan Mountain in Northwest China's Ningxia Hui autonomous region in the 1980s, he was struck by the rock paintings. He later paid more visits and has used many of the mysterious patterns from there in his artworks.
In 2010, Han donated over 1,000 pieces of his works to the municipal government of Yinchuan, prompting the Han Meilin Art Museum to be built in the Helan Mountain Rock Art Heritage Park.
