Kaiyuan Square is just one of many public light show installations about Xi’an. The centre piece is a statue of Xuan Zong, Emperor of the Tang Dynasty for the first half of the 7th century, a period considered by many to be the Golden age of China: there was peace and prosperity and advances in education and culture. The pedestal of the statue is surrounded by statues of musicians on one tier and prosperous men on the other, reflects this.

The 8 columns appear to have an LED matrix, like a TV screen, wrapped around them. They’re computer controlled and run through a constantly changing cycle of about 10 minutes.
