Cultural Scenes :
Fabrication of Silk
The Uygurs learned how to cultivate Mulberry trees, exclusive diet of the bombyx silk worm. The refinement of the silk threads is an eloquent dance. The weaving of the threads on beautifully crafted looms is a theatrical hand-made production.
Other inventions from the Mulberry tree are paper & medicines.

Carving Jade :

Exhumed by the rise of the Kun-Lun Mountains, jade rich rocks, born from colossal pressures at a depth of 100 kilometers in the earth's crust, are polished and whisked away by the Yurungkax and Karakax Rivers. Boulders of jade left in these riverbeds are the source of a treasure prized by chinese emperors since the dawn of the Middle Kingdom.
