Then general history writing attempts to combine the results of these Illustrator Art Work slices to make comprehensive research and judgments, so that People are close to the whole picture of the past, and become a reference for understanding the present and thinking about the future.

This can be said to have been a question that has plagued China for hundreds of years.
