Irgashev Shakhrukh wanted to see how the ancient stone carvings engraved on the mountain rocks represented the ancient Chinese aesthetic. Malinin Stephan, who also loves classical Chinese culture, wanted to see the micro-expressions of the terracotta warriors...... Produced by People's Daily Online West USA, “Viewing China from Afar, A Story in China” is a series of short videos that was released online recently, documenting a group of young foreigners' travels in China in 2020.
