ching ming

This chinese painting, named “Along the River during the Ching-Ming festival” and executed around 1085-1145e, is considered as one of China’s great treasures. The National Palace Museum of Taiwan created a nice page to get a good vizualisation of the 5.28 meters wide painting.

For once I was quite happy to see some Flash allowing a better usability, it would have been quite hard to have a good view of the painting without that. Also, don’t miss the 3D animations launchable from the white boxes in the painting, they are a lovely way to give life to a painting.
