The original ecology art refers to a form of performance without special carving, which exists in the folk primitive. It is an important part of oral and intangible cultural heritage in the art of the Chinese nation. The peacock dance originated in Dai, a minority group in China. Peacocks are symbols of beauty, wisdom, and strength. The theme of the peacock has been a valuable subject in the oriental aesthetic. The original ecology dance, “The Spirit of Peacock,” records and reflects the minority people’s attitudes towards life. China is a traditional agricultural society that emphasizes the harmony between human and nature. After watching “The Spirit of Peacock,” I felt that the dance itself not only exudes the natural flavor, which conveys emotion and thoughts of a common humanity, but it also makes a beautiful connection between art and natural life.
