Traditional Chinese landscape painting absorbs the philosophical thoughts of the ancients and depicts an ideal picture of the harmonious coexistence of human living environment and nature, showing the origin of ancient Chinese architecture and nature in every way. The space of the habitat of traditional villages also confirms this logical core. Only by adapting to nature and conforming to nature can we truly achieve harmony and unity between man and nature. By interpreting the painting, mood and habitat space in traditional landscape paintings, we compare whether the peachland wonderland depicted in landscape paintings fits with the habitat environment in traditional villages, and interpret the philosophical connotation of the unity of heaven and man inside and outside the paintings.
