However, guests from all over the world saw that lion and animal skins were missing in the procession of dressing up beasts, because there were no lions and animals in China at that time. Later, through cultural exchanges, real lions came to China from West Asia through the Silk Road. Lion taming dance, an ancient acrobatic show in West Asia, first came to China to lead real lion performers, then known as "lion tamer", and accompanied them. Because the transportation was not developed at that time and the real lion was rarely transported to China, the thrilling and exciting lion taming dance could only be held in the imperial palace.
