Media Recommendation
The Han inscriptions are of profound and majestic spirit.
  ——Lu Xun, a great writer of the 20th century
I'm in an agony of love for the rubbings, which, for 2,000 years, have been passed down generation to generation.
  ——Guo Moruo, a great man ofletters in modern China
I really want to kneel down to pay my respects to our forefathers in the Han Dynasty.
  —— Wu Guanzhong, a leading Chinese painter, art educator and essayist
No other dynasty in Chinese history can be compared with the Han Dynasty in terms of the inscribing of real life and popular stories into the stones. If the pictures inscribed in the stones were collected systematically, they would become an
illustrated history of the Han Dynasty.
  ——Jian Bozan, a distinguished historian
Wang Hongzhen is more a writer than a collector in that he can examine the beauty of the Han stone pictures with a writer's sensitivity, a collector's viewpoint, and a scholar's resolution.
  ——Song Xin, a writer and journalist
