The ancient Chinese people believed that the soul was immortal and that after death people continued to live in a fashion very similar to life on earth.The burial chamber was thought to be the location Of this“life after death”.This conception gave rise to the Chinese tradition of lavish interments.The tombs of emperors ,in particular,were constructed as complete underground worlds, filled with an extensive and luxurious selection of items for the de intceased.
The human desire for good fortune and longevity finds expression in Chinese architecture.The Chinese characters for“bat”and“good fortune”are homonyms,SO the mountain in the Sum met Palace was constructed in the shape of a bat.Peaches are a metaphor for longevity,So the lake there was shaped like a peach.Together,the mountain and lake conveyed wishes for good fortune and longevity.
