A new tourist attraction in the city

At Egongyan Bridge on h Jiubin Road, Jiulongpo District, a group of giant 3D colored paintings using the piers of Egongyan Bridge as canvases have been completed and opened to the public. In total, these paintings cover an area of more than 10,000 square meters, of which more than 1,000 square meters are restored scenes and sculptures.

To take full advantage of the landform below the bridge, restoring scenes, sculpturing, and 3D panoramic painting are used to reproduce what an arsenal looked like during the Chinese People’s War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression.

As a new red tourist attraction in the city, it helps educate visitors on patriotism through effective interaction. In this way, people, especially young people, can learn and face up to history and cherish China’s hard-won peace.

The bridge painting project at Jiubin Road is located below the bridge at the road in Chongqing Jianchuan Museum Settlement, Jiulongpo District. As you approach, elements of “blue skies and white clouds” and fighter jets such as the J-10C and J-20C will come into view. Below them is a boundless sea on which sail People’s Liberation Army Navy Liaoning, Zhuhai Destroyer, and other Chinese combat ships. These 3D paintings offer visitors an immersive experience of China’s naval strength.

This project as well as Zhuhai Destroyer, The People’s Navy Goes Forward—Exhibition of People’s Memories, Chongqing Military Port Square, and others, are designed by combining virtuality with reality. The artistic scenarios have demonstrated China’s strong air and sea forces. When lights below the bridge are on at night, a picture of the “beautiful sea” shows against the backdrop of Zhuhai Destroyer. So it is quite a good choice for a night trip.
