The origin of mountain name
"The mountains are like the min'e sect, and the peaks are like jagged peaks. Xianyou also resident crane, monk also habitat toad. The moon is hanging in the sky, and the pine wind blows at the toad. There is a poem that breaks off the scabby wall, and Kuteng Tim is the only one. " This is a poem of yangsheng'an, the number one scholar in Sichuan and a famous poet in Ming Dynasty, praising Yuchan mountain. Yuchan mountain is located 35 kilometers south of Luzhou City, Sichuan Province, with undulating peaks and lush trees. It is named after the shape of mountains and rocks that are more like toads. One day, Huang Tingjian, a famous writer and calligrapher of the Song Dynasty, visited Yuchan mountain in admiration of his name. He was intoxicated by the scenery of the mountains and waters. In particular, many toads paid homage to him, which made him happy and lingered on. The old abbot of Yuantong Temple on the mountain had heard about Huang Tingjian for a long time, so he welcomed him into the temple and offered jade toad tea and jade toad wine. While drinking tea, he talked about jade toad stone in the mountain. Seeing Huang Tingjian talking and laughing, the old host was very excited, so he asked the monks to put on the four treasures of the study and asked Huang Tingjian to inscribe the calligraphy. Huang Tingjian readily agreed and wrote two simple and vigorous characters "jade toad". Due to Huang Tingjian's drunken pen, he wrote a little of the word "Yu" on it, leaving a good story about "drunken Yuchan". Later, the monks engraved the word "Yuchan" on the cliff and renamed Yuantong Temple "Yuchan Temple". The Mo Yan statue in Ming Dynasty can be regarded as one of the unique jade toad mountains. On the cliff of the main peak of jin'ao peak, there are more than 400 statues of rock rubbing in the Ming Dynasty, such as thousand handed Guanyin, six armed Guanyin and liantai Guanyin. The larger one is more than ten meters, and the smaller one is not enough. The statue is simple and elegant, with smooth lines, delicate carving, symmetrical proportion, lifelike and lifelike. Among them, the composition of the painting of enlightenment is unique and thought-provoking: under the whirling bodhi tree, a believer sits with his face on his knee and meditates deeply, giving people a sense of Zen.
Qianshou Guanyin is a time of the Ming Dynasty. The stone carvings of the Ming Dynasty have a history of more than 600 years, and the well preserved stone carvings are rare in the whole country. There are more than 400 stone carvings in Yuchan. The statue is 5.6 meters high and 3.5 meters wide. It has 11 heads, 36 arms, and thousands of hands, which are densely covered with thousands of hands. Besides, there are eyes on the thousand hands, just like a peacock opening the screen. Thousand hands means boundless power, thousand eyes, and infinite insight. Every year, the worshippers from southern Sichuan come here to worship.
Yuchan mountain is intoxicated with its beautiful scenery and many places of interest. Moreover, it attracts Chinese and foreign tourists with the large-scale stone carving relief "refugee map" on the stone wall of jin'ao peak. The relief sculpture of a large-scale figure on the stone wall of jin'ao peak in Yuchan mountain is a newly engraved scenic spot. This group of stone reliefs were made according to the "refugee map" by Mr. Jiang Zhaohe. The stone relief work was started in July 1987 and completed in April 1989. The relief is 45 meters in length and 3 meters in height. With more than 100 characters, the picture comprehensively shows the tragic scene of the people in dire need of a living under the iron hoof of the Japanese aggressors.
Jiang Zhaohe's "refugee map" was created in the enemy occupied Beiping during the Anti Japanese war in 1943. The original picture is 27 meters long and 2 meters high. At that time, Mr. Jiang Zhaohe lived in Peiping and witnessed the tragic scene brought about by the Japanese aggressors to the Chinese nation. The cruel reality shook his heart. So he angrily took up his brush and filled his blood and tears to create the "refugee map".
Looking from right to left, we can see the silence of the endangered old people, the lamentation of the peasants who have left their hometown, the indignation of the young peasants with hoes in their hands, the pyramidal barrier built by mother and son who escaped from enemy aircraft bombing, the bones lying horizontally under the broken wall, the call of children begging along the street, the hard walking of the unemployed and injured workers, the women driven crazy, the old people who want to hang themselves, and they are unable to support them Finally, two intellectuals are looking forward to the dawn of the recovery of the motherland This painting volume is not only with its historical theme, but also with its exquisite artistic expression of combining Chinese painting and Western painting realistic skills, and with its in-depth depiction of the inner world of the characters, it has become a great picture in the history of modern Chinese figure painting.
When I visited Yuchan mountain and saw the large stone relief painting of refugees, I not only experienced the beautiful natural scenery, but also received profound patriotic education. Touching the scene, he wrote a poem: "the historical giant painting engraved on the cliff, the tragic scene is startling. The jade toad carries the refugee map forever, remembers the Anti Japanese patriotism.
