A portrait of Austrian explorer Joseph Rock and his adventures in the south-west of China from 1922 to 1949. Rock spent the best part of 30 years collecting plants, hunting birds, taking photographs, shooting films and exploring the mountainous regions of the south-west of China. When Rock first arrived in China, he made his headquarters in a small Naxi village near Lijiang in south-west China. There he discovered the Naxi priests, the Dongbas, and their religious pictographic script.
