The Han Cheng Lake (漢城湖), located at the north part of Xi’an, is the place to display the scenes of Han Dynasty, the second united dynasty of China after Qing (秦). It reinforced the system of central controlling power, but it also eased the tax burden on civilians to stabilize the society. It cultivated the Confucianism, and expanded its terrain to establish the first great territory of China.
Along the lake there is couple of beacons, which were duplicated according to Han’s style, simply structured with strong bases. Their monochrome tone took us back to the battle fields in the ancient time, when beacons were used to pass the information from one site to another.
