To make Dazu a world-famous cultural center and enhance the international influence of Dazu rock carvings, Dazu Rock Carving Academy, together with Chongqing International Communication Center and Chongqing Broadcasting Group, holds fully account of mass media channels to broadcast the videos in Chinese and English.

As the only world cultural heritage in Chongqing and one of the important cultural symbols of Chongqing, the Dazu rock carvings are hailed as the last masterpiece in the history of human cave art. They are famous for their large scale, exquisite carvings, varied themes, rich connotations and well-preserved cultural relics.

“The Dazu Rock Carvings Academy is responsible for the protection, management, research and wise use of the Dazu Rock Carvings.” Li Fangyin, director of the Dazu Rock Carvings Academy, said the Academy is dedicated to publicizing and showing the artistic appeal and humanistic spirit of Dazu rock carvings to the world. The Academy is accelerating its progression to become a world-renowned research institute.

The series begins with “If the Dazu Rock Carvings Were a Play”, which gives a comprehensive interpretation of the Dazu Rock Carvings from a new perspective. The “Sharing Dazu Rock Carvings with the World” video brings together the compilers of the Complete Works of the Dazu Rock Carvings book to share the aspirations and stories of those who have cared for and supported Dazu Rock Carvings research.

A micro-video producer said, “It took us over a year to prepare for the micro-video shoot. We tried to observe the Dazu rock carvings from an expert’s point of view, of a tourist, a video producer and even a foreigner to present these statues to the public with our shots and our words.” In the video, scholars and experts who compiled the Complete Works of Dazu Rock Carvings said, “The caves are weathering. The information in them disappears over time. It saddens me… We, the archaeologists, are responsible for protecting and promoting Dazu Rock Carvings… We want to share Dazu Rock Carvings with the world and let more people know about them.
