‘Wulanmutu’ mountain is situated in territory of Bajiazi village of Fuxin Mongolia Autonomous County, it was called ‘Alimatu’ mountain at an early age. Both of the two name are the transliteration of Mongolian, the former in Chinese is ‘Mountain growing red trees’, the latter ‘Mountain growing pears’ was once used a long period of time.

The main peak of the mountain is ‘Guodi(the bottom of a pan) Mountain’. Its altitude of 831.4 meters makes it the highest mountain in Fuxin. A magnificent view can be overlooked from the main peak. It was called ‘Yimatu’ by the folk.

The reason that SUN Xun entitles his artwork as ‘Yimatu Drama Mountain’ is for its meaning of standing on top of the peak, overlooking the city's historic changes. He is raised in Fuxin, there exists his childhood experience, this memory for him is just as the historical development of the drama.
