A Recent Discovery
Last year, an important discovery was found in the Northern China, which was a sphinx. This had been proved not to be planted in recent years but really originated from the ancient China. It is indeed an important discovery because sphinx is somehow new for the Chinese people it is the famous icon from Egypt which dated back to thousands of years ago. Even after centuries, when the sphinx was found out from the tomb, it still remained in good shape with good carvings and shapes. In fact, the information of this piece of discovery is from a website with great authority, The Asian Origin Net. The news was published in December in 2015, written by the reporter Mark Miller.
The sphinx found in China is like a mysterious creature because the face of the sphinx is like a human face while the body of it is like that of a lion. This discovery is indeed significant for us and the historians to look into the past because sphinx has been rarely seen in China, especially in ancient time. In addition, the material that the sphinx was made is white marble, which is also something too rare in the ancient China.
Therefore, the historians can make a conclusion that such a design must have been influenced by the culture from outside. Therefore, according to the new report, it is mentioned that sphinxes were mostly in places such as the south Asia or the southeast Asia but in ancient China, sphinxes were rare. Therefore, it can be dated back to the influence of the Great Silk Road since in the path of the Great Silk Road, the city NingXia was also influenced. Because of this discovery, the sphinx, the scholars as well as the historians can make use of it to further study how the freight transport and the foreign diplomatic relationship was in Tang Dynasty.
In fact, Tang Dynasty was one of the most prosperous dynasties in ancient China. Although in Qing and Ming Dynasty, China had been intruded and bullied by a lot of foreign nations because China stopped its foreign diplomatic relationship with the nations outside and that caused the slow development of the nation. However, the previous prosperous period cannot be forgotten. It is true that in the nineteenth century, China had a notorious reputation about how it had refused to cooperate with other nations or to open the nation to get to know the world. Most people had a misunderstanding that China only opened it nation before it was found in the twentieth century. However, the Great Silk Road had proved this conception to be wrong.
To be honest, I would like to know a bit more about this discovery such as whether the sphinx found in China was similar to the sphinx in any specific nation in the Middle East. However, in the article, this part was not mentioned. I think it is significant because from the similarity of the sphinx found in China and that in another nation, the historians are able to find out which nation China had a close diplomatic relationship with in the Tang Dynasty. In this international world, it is no longer possible for any nations to fight alone so it is important for China to find out with which nation they can form the alliance with.
I think this discovery is related to the chapter about the prosperous development of the ancient Chinese history and it can also help us understand the world history of the nations in the Middle East as well of the prehistoric range of the lion’s influence.
