Village seniors recreate Chinese masterpiece on cloth

Jan 21, 2020

A 12-meter cloth painting of the Chinese masterpiece "Riverside Scene of Qingming Festival" has been made in Situan Town of Fengxian.

The painters are a dozen senior villagers who began learning about paintings since just last May. Over the period they would keep referring to the original piece as they worked to create a better duplicate.

The canvas is a kind of local handmade cloth in indigo color, which is also an intangible cultural heritage of the suburban district that can be made into bags, dolls and clothes.
