I、 An Introduction to Character-laying Project

This project began from the beginning of March, 2009. After a series of making first-phase preparations, such as the hard negotiation of elaborative design and mountain affiliation, in accordance with the local tradition of worshiping the Great Guan and Mountain Gods on lucky days by setting off fireworks for 60 minutes, the holy carving project in Zhongtiao Mountain started on March 10th.

During the construction period, a group of civilian workers got up early and went home late to expect to finish the project within the time limit of project. They quarried, explored and carried stones with great hardship in the high mountains and abrupt slopes. What beads of sweat when they placed the stones at specific locations! If a slip on the foot, maybe the workers as well as stones would have rolled down the mountain. Only by experiencing personally can you recognize the heart-in-the-mouth situation under such hard conditions. 

When the stones were inadequate, the mules would carry the stones on the back up the mountain, and the mule drivers and the stone-carried mules had become the friends going through thick and thin together. There are five female members who took over the basketball-like stones from the men and passed on the next. Ever the story “Foolish Man Moving Mountains” today reappeared with different forms in the character-laying project of Zhongtiao Mountain. 

A team of visitor from the cities paid a special visit to the project and climbed the mountain with hands and feet. When they arrived at bottom part of established character, they were rather tired and almost can’t move at all, and the ladies were as if bright butterflies decorated and roosted on the gigantic stokes of that character with the shining colorful umbrella. After knowing the free service and no rewards, they were shocked with the artists who moved, passed and guided at the construction site.  The resounding horn, the flashing sweat had deeply impressed everyone at present. Thus, the so-far world largest stone-laying ancient seal character “水” was born after one hundred days construction.
