The Zuojiang Huashan Rock Art Cultural Landscape


The relative inaccessibility created by the karst landforms of the Zuojiang River area has left the Zuojiang Huashan rock art well preserved and undamaged for the last 2,000 years since the Eastern Han Dynasty.
The Chinese government at all levels, including all of the relevant departments, has adopted a thorough protection and management strategy for the Zuojiang Huashan Rock Art in accordance with established rules and regulations, including the 'Cultural Relics Protection Law of the Peoples' Republic of China', 'World Cultural Heritage Management Measures', 'Management Measures of Monitoring and Patrol of World Cultural Heritage in China', 'Protection Measures of Zuojiang Rock Art of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region' and 'Protection Measures of Zuojiang Rock Art of Chongzuo'.

Over the past 20 years the Chinese Government has adopted a 'cyclical mechanism' for planning, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and feedback to conduct the protection and management work. Specific plans have been formulated and implemented such as the 'Management Planning on the Zuojiang Huashan Rock Art Cultural Landscape's declaration for the World Heritage'. The heritage sites have established dedicated fully funded organizations and programs for scientists and facilities. The Peoples' Government of Chongzuo now coordinates all major administrative decisions related to protection and management in Ninming County, Longzhou County, Fusui County and Jiangzhou District.
