San-xing-dui, the archeological site in Southwest China, represents the ancient civilization of the Shu Kingdom from 3000 to 5000 years ago.

Today in Beijing, a new TV series called "Jin Sha" has begun shooting. The show promises to show you the mysterious Shu civilization once more.

At the press conference to launch the shooting of the series, models wore Shu style dresses and actors donned golden masks similar to the ones unearthed from the San-xing-dui site.

The series "Jin Sha" is created from the history and folk tales of the Shu civilization, and tells a story about the change-over of dynasties in the Shu Kingdom.
