Unfolded in the elaborately-painted set of drawings is a soul-stirring scene: delivering a rice dumpling labeled as "festival of the intangible cultural heritage" to a youngster, a greybeard dressed in traditional costume emphasizes: "traditions are supposed to be inherited and advocated from one generation to another."
Apparently, what the cartoonist attempts to emphasize is the inheritance of traditional culture. Like tangible cultural heritages such as the Great Wall and the Forbidden City, intangible cultural heritages like Peking Opera and celebration of traditional festivals are equally crucial. As a country consisting of a great diversity of ethnic groups and with time-honored history and civilization, China abounds in intangible cultural heritages. Cultural heritages connect modern people with the historical past, allowing them to acquire a cultural and historical identity. Without cultural heritages, we would be rendered absolutely rootless and we would find it hard to cope with challenges at present and in the future.
However, the modernization process poses mounting threats to intangible heritages. It is also pathetic to see elderly people in possession of such legacies pass away without transmitting them to the younger generation. Confronted with those challenges, we should both preserve and rejuvenate our ancestral heritages so that we can help contribute to the cultural diversity of the world and return to our spiritual homeland in this age of impersonal science and technology.
