The photo portrays the mysterious and monumental stone funerary statues that accompany early Chinese emperors’ tombs. Dating from the Qin, Han, Tang, Song, and Ming dynasties, the rite of the Stone Statue epitomizes the power, wealth and sophistication of ancient kingdoms whose grandiose relics are reminders of China’s disappearing heritage.

Qian Jin was born in 1960 in Zhejiang, China, and currently lives in Beijing. He started painting when he was a child. He studied art and design and worked as a designer?a magazine editor?and as commercial photographer. In 2015, he changed his focus to fine art photography, special black and white. “Dynasty in stone Series” were exhibited at FOTOFEST International Discoveries VI, 2017. “Home Series”were exhibited at Beizhen China International Photography Festival 2018.
