Suzhou Silk Art Creation Process
Forest's 21st Century Silk Road
The original painting is one of the most renown in Chinese history. It is not simply a scenic landscape painting, but also in essence, a historical snapshot of the people and society at the time. Painted around the turn of the 12th century, this panoramic masterpiece depicts scenes along both banks of the Bian River of the capital city of Bian Liang (Kaifeng, Henan province, today) in the Northern Song Dynasty during the Qing Ming Festival. The original painting was over 30 feet wide, including 1600 people, 428 animals and over 500 real life stories. It is currently well preserved in the Forbidden City National Museum in Beijing, China. This silk embroidery is only a section of the original.
