Scattered in the areas of Bangzitai, Sandaohao and Beiyuan of Liaoyang City, Liaoning Province, the construction of the mural tombs (辽阳壁画墓群) began during the Three Kingdoms period. The tombs have more than 1700 years of history. The owners of the tombs were all the grandees in Gongsun's regime in the region of Eastern Liao.
The murals in the tombs are directly painted on the stone wall of the coffin chamber. The topics mainly center on the experience and the life of the tomb owners. The murals are structured with vivid images and bright colors. They are rare tools for the research into the economy, culture, and living of the noble and rich families in the area of Eastern Liao at that time.
