Preface: Return to the Nature, Working Hand in Hand for OriginFor thousands of years, Mosuo ancestors have created their magical and unique culture with it’s simple wisdom and hard work. This magical Mosuo culture is like the remnant stars in the night sky but with charming light, dotted this sky which belongs to her and making people feel yearning.In my memory, in the late night, the Mosuo grandmother’s pious prayers and the mysterious story of the old Daba became a lingering picture. They pray that human being will have no wars, no disasters, no pains. They wish to hear the sound of peace and good fortune in their ears as well as seeing beautiful and harmonious scene in their eyes. They say that people must respect nature, respect life and be thanksgiving, which are the core parts of Mosuo culture and it continues with no rhetoric, no gorgeous words, but real and silently flowing in their blood. It is precious that their inheritance with words and deeds, with subtle influences has formed generations in a natural and sincere way. This is the soul of Mosuo culture and long-lasting spiritual heritage. However, it requires our reflection as this ancient and excellent culture is living by our side but passing by or disappearing in our inadvertent.Exploring the Original Nature – Culture and Art Creation activities are based on such an initial idea. It shows the most authentic observation and contains deep personal feeling of Mosuo culture. Since 2010, we have been insisting on doing this activity, and remain true to our original aspiration. Thus, more famous artists and anthropologists from China and other countries, who are sincere and feeling this culture by heart as well as loving this land, have participated in this project today.Here, I am especially grateful to my friend, Mr. Gao Xiang, a doctor of oil painting at China Central Academy of Fine Art. Thanks to his painstaking efforts and his ardently love for Mosuo culture during the past ten years. Thanks to all the artists who participated in this project and those who have always concerned and support this activity. We will condense our thoughts, feelings and experiences of its humanistic amorous on the canvases in the form of painting language. I also wish more people bring their enthusiasm to participate in this project, walking into nature and life, as well as return to the nature, working hand in hand for origin. Using our sincerity and working to make it become eternal.
