Rural aesthetics is an important part of Chinese traditional culture, and it has paved the way for the modernization process of rural areas in China. Today, urbanization is accelerating. On one hand, a huge floating population is pouring into the city in search of a better living environment and living conditions. On the other hand, urban residents are more eager to return to the countryside and live a comfortable and paradise-like life. From the perspective of rural aesthetics, this study analyzes the path of traditional culture and ethical reshaping, and constructs rural cultural values, in order to provide some reference for maintaining national identity and tracing the origin of traditional culture.
