Qingming Mural

On the East wall of the Chinese Garden is a replica of "Along the River During the Qingming Festival," a painting attributed to the Song Dynasty artist Zhang Zeduan (1085-1145).

It captures the daily life and landscape of the capital, Bianjing (today's Kaifeng). The painting is considered to be the most renowned work among all Chinese paintings and has been called "China's Mona Lisa."
