Gi­ant Roll: Map of the Yangtze

April 10 – April 30 Na­tional Mu­seum of China, Bei­jing

China Pictorial (English) - - Culture -

On dis­play is a 200-me­ter-long, 1.5-me­ter-tall scroll paint­ing themed on the Yangtze River, a mother river of the Chi­nese na­tion. It took a year for 50 artists to com­plete the project.

Ti­tled Mapof theyangtze , the paint­ing is a ma­jes­tic and mag­nif­i­cent joint project that fully cap­tures the splen­did scenery of the Yangtze River such as snow-capped moun­tains, oases and plains along the banks, as well as the Three Gorges Dam, the world’s largest hy­dro­elec­tric project, and ur­ban land­scapes with high-rise build­ings and high­ways that wind through the moun­tains—a di­verse im­age of China’s new era fused with mod­ern fla­vor.
