Longmen Twenty Statues Inscriptions are excellent representative works of Chinese Weibei calligraphy. Longmen Twenty Statues Inscriptions are in the Longmen Grottoes Scenic area of Luoyang City, Henan Province, China. However, some visitors today do not fully understand the symbolic meaning of the Longmen Twenty Statues Inscriptions image, thus ignoring this cultural heritage to some extent. Therefore, it is necessary to study the history, social background, and cultural value of Weibei calligraphy, identify the Longmen Twenty Statues Inscriptions image symbolism, and analyze the cultural perception of visitors, to improve the situation. The research through the integrated literature sorted out the evolution process of each section of Weibei calligraphy in history. Based on previous studies, this research summarizes the symbolic meaning of the Longmen Twenty Statues Inscriptions. To sum up, the research analyzes the characteristics of the Weibei calligraphy, summarizes the image symbolism of the Longmen Twenty Statues Inscriptions, and combines the cultural perception of Chinese visitors to focus on the meaning behind Longmen Twenty Statues Inscriptions.
