The mural is a depiction of the ancient Chinese custom of sacrificial offerings to the sun gods. Its 15-metre span also tells the two fables of Han Yi and Kua Fu taming the sun, myths that may feel pertinent as you try to withstand Beijing’s raging heat. ‘A static mural is a counterpoint to the [bustling] life of the park.’ Pat Carswell, Beijing Review, 2012. The most colourful of the entries here, the lively yellows and greens of this mural still have the power to brighten up any grey Beijing day.
