Cross Stitch Painting Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival

“Along the River During the Qingming Festival (Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival) (simplified Chinese: 清明上河图; traditional Chinese: 清明上河圖; pinyin: Qīngmíng Shànghé Tú) is a panoramic painting by Song Dynasty artist Zhang Zeduan (1085–1145). It captures the daily life of people from the Song period at the capital, Bianjing, today’s Kaifeng. The theme celebrates the festive spirit and worldly commotion at the Qingming Festival, rather than the holiday’s ceremonial aspects, such as tomb sweeping and prayers. The entire piece was painted in hand scroll format and the content reveals the lifestyle of all levels of the society from rich to poor as well as different economic activities in rural areas and the city. It offers glimpses of period clothing and architecture. As an artistic creation, the piece has been revered and court artists of subsequent dynasties have made several re-interpretive replicas…
In the original 5.28-meter long picture, there are 814 humans, 28 boats, 60 animals, 30 buildings, 20 vehicles, nine sedan chairs, and 170 trees drawn. “

Qingming Cross Stitch – EBay
I don’t usually write articles about EBay items, but I found this one and thought that it is an impressive piece of cross stitch and was worthy of a mention. Follow the link to see more closeup photographs of this handiwork.
This cross stitch measures 162″ x 24″
