  4. 4. Structure <ul><li>Since the Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors period, some form of Chinese monarch has been the main ruler above all. Different periods of history have different names for the various positions within society. Conceptually each imperial or feudal period is similar, with the government and military officials ranking high in the hierarchy, and the rest of the population under regular Chinese law[1]. Ancient Chinese education also has a long history especially with the Imperial examination. Trades and crafts were usually taught by a sifu. The female historian Ban Zhao wrote the Lessons for Women in the Han Dynasty and outlined the four virtues women must abide to. Chinese marriage and Taoist sexual practices are some of the customs and rituals found in society. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Values <ul><li>Main articles: Chinese philosophy and Religion in China Most social values are derived from Confucianism and Taoism with a combination of conservatism. The subject of which school was the most influential is always debated as many concepts such as Neo-Confucianism, Buddhism and many others have come about. Reincarnation and other rebirth concept is a reminder of the connection between real-life and the next-life. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Literature <ul><li>The extensive collection of books that have been preserved since the Zhou Dynasty demonstrate just how advanced the intellectuals have been at one time. Indeed, the era of the Zhou Dynasty is often looked to as the touchstone of Chinese cultural development. The Five Cardinal Points is the foundation for almost all major studies. Concepts covered within the Chinese classic texts present a wide range of subjects including poetry, astrology, astronomy, calendar, constellations and many others. Some of the most important early texts include I Ching and Shujing within the Four Books and Five Classics. Many Chinese concepts such as Yin and Yang, Qi, Four Pillars of Destiny in relation to heaven and earth were all theorized in the dynastic periods. </li></ul><ul><li>Notable confucianists, taoists and scholars of all class have made significant contributions from documenting history to authoring saintly concepts that seem hundred of years ahead of time. Many novels such as Four Great Classical Novels spawned countless fictional stories. By the end of the Qing Dynasty, Chinese culture would embark on a new era with Vernacular Chinese for the common citizens. Hu Shih and Lu Xun would be pioneers in modern literature. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Martial arts <ul><li>China is the original birth place of Eastern martial arts. The names of martial arts were called Kung Fu or its first name Wushu. China also includes the home to the well-respected Shaolin Monastery and Wudang Mountains. The first generation of art started more for the purpose of survival and warfare than art. Overtime, some art forms have branched off, while others have retained a distinct Chinese flavor. Regardless, China has brewed some of the most renowned martial artists including Wong Fei Hung and many others. The art have also co-existed with a variety of weapons including the more standard 18 arms. Legendary and controversial moves like Dim Mak are also praised and talked about within the culture </li></ul>

  9. 9. Treasures in Chinese Study <ul><li>In the long history of Chinese culture, treasures in the study have long been coined. Brush pen, ink, paper and inkstone are the four treasures in the study. Then some auxiliary items appeared, and were cherished by the scholars and were called treasures in the study (qinggong). They were also called as Wenwan for their elegant style and exquisite craftwork. The materials for Wenwan vary a lot, including rare metals, jades, lacquers, pottery, glass, enamel and bamboo, wood, ivory, horn, etc. Generations of artisans created these wonderful and most admirable crafts according to the quality of a particular material, and with great adroitness and craftsmanship. </li></ul><ul><li>This documentary introduced the brush pen, ink, paper and inkslab, and the legends related with them, informing the audience about the development, cultural connotation, appreciating value and spiritual significance unique to the oriental culture. </li></ul>
