About Beijing Hand Scroll
Hand scrolls are not suitable for public exhibition, but they are very suitable for private observation: one can scroll it open slowly and enjoy every detail. The most famous hand scroll in history is obviously Qingming Festival Along the River. This long scroll of 25 cm in width and 529 cm in length depicts a city in a detailed and vivid manner. No hand scroll can surpass this achievement.
