A rare treasure left by thieves in the thousand-year-old tomb!

The Shanxi archaeological team conducted a rescue excavation of an ancient tomb covering more than 400 square meters in Wangguo Village, Taiyuan, in 1979. After entering the tomb, they discovered that, aside from a rotten coffin, there were traces of theft all over the place. The archaeologists exhaled deeply: "Fortunately, this thing is still there!"  

The mysterious ancient tomb was discovered during construction in Wangguo Village, Taiyuan, in 1972. The tomb passage's two murals are filled with colorful murals of people and horses. Everyone exclaimed, "We've discovered a treasure!" However, at this time, the villagers filled the excavated soil and rolled it back and forth with a tractor several times.

Archaeologists remembered the hastily reburied tomb seven years later and began to plan excavations.  

However, the interior of the ancient tomb has already been riddled with holes and severely damaged as a result of the barbaric burial method used seven years ago and several visits by tomb robbers. Except for a rotten coffin and fragments of cultural relics, gold, silver, and jewels have vanished from the tomb. 

However, archaeological experts consider themselves extremely fortunate because the most valuable cultural relics in this ancient tomb have been preserved:  These are the murals on the tomb's walls.  

This ancient tomb is located in Jinyuan District, southwest of Taiyuan, Shanxi, near Wangguo Village. It is divided into five sections that face south from north:

Two guards sit on horses and walk in front of the team, which is followed by a team of horses and camels. The owner, dressed in a red robe, sits on the horse and slowly advances. Everything is in perfect harmony.  

Without realizing what was going on in front of him, one of the guards abruptly reined in the horse that was walking under his crotch, turned around, and screamed. 

The terrified horse raised its head, its front legs ceased to move, but its hind legs continued to kick backwards. Perhaps it was too frightening. From the horse's buttocks, a long string of feces protruded. The so-called "scared to pee" looked something like this.

So, how do these magnificent murals come to be created?  When creating murals in tomb chambers, ancient Chinese painters used a technique known as "ground battle," according to records. 

When the ground and the white ash layer are half wet and half soft, they will use bamboo to outline the outline of the drawn figure on it, and then use light ink to outline the draft and apply the color halo dye. 

the The murals' pigments are all natural, and the colors are fairly rich, with earth red, cinnabar, ocher, cooked brown, stone yellow, azurite, stone green, jet black, and clam powder among them. The color effect is quite bright.

She gave birth to three emperors for Northern Qi in the short 28 years of the Northern Qi royal family, Gao Yang, Gao Yan, and Gao Zhan. It can be said that she, along with the family behind her, has a very high status in Northern Qi. Lou Rui is the nephew of Lou Zhaojun.  

Because his father died when he was a child, Lou Rui was raised by his aunt Lou Zhaojun, and his uncle Gao Huan frequently took him out for training. 

Lou Rui received a good military education under the care of his aunt's family and accompanied his uncle Gao Huan all the way when he raised the army.
