"Royal Tribute Picture of Qing Dynasty" is an album of Chinese painting made during Qianlong period of Qing Dynasty that illustrated minorities and outlanders who lives in other provinces or foreign countries. It’s a realistic depiction because it was seeing with one’s own eyes. Besides of icons and Chinese as well as Qing Manchu language texts, the album has a simple couple for describing each ethnic group’s personality, custom, costume and habit. There are 9 pictures with descriptions of musical instruments, and 4 of them with the musical instrument Sheng (or Lusheng), which was the most popular one shown as community symbolic status. However, the Sheng (Lusheng) form in one of these 4 pictures named "Miao Minority in the Luocheng County" about Guangxi region, is different from the form in this region recently. In this project, the context of the two forms of Sheng (Luseng), "Miao Minority in the Luocheng County" picture and recently form, would be found through archeologic achievements near the region, iconography, description of reference materials. This project would have an observation for the migration of Chinese minorities in recent 200 years, find the transforming reasons of Sheng (Lusheng) history, and provide a lateral thinking for Sheng (Lusheng) development.
