With the increasing scarcity of potable freshwater resources around the world, the protection and utilization of water resources in the current ecological civilization society should be more scientific and accurate. It has become the focus of academic research to excavate the wisdom of water use in the daily production and life of ancient society and give full play to its value of the times. This paper attempts to take the image of the water god in folk art as the research object, focusing on the artistic image characteristics of the water god along the ancient Silk Road, under the triple vision of belief, culture, and aesthetics. by using the methods of historical carding, category study and case analysis, this paper mainly combines the three important categories of water god belief places, visual images and folk texts in the oasis settlement in arid areas. This paper makes a point-by-point study of the relationship between this belief proposition and human aesthetic activities and analyzes the artistic characteristics of cross-regional water god worship on the origin and transplantation along the Silk Road. From the aspects of art dissemination, regional resources (humanities and nature), technological exchanges, etc., this paper attempts to reveal the important folk art exchanges in the cultural exchanges between the East and the West under the ancient Silk Road worship art form and spatial distribution, as well as the development value of resources on the current Silk Road cultural belt.
