About this artwork

The Great Wall of China is actually four great walls rather than a single, continuous wall. The oldest section was begun in 221 b.c., not long after China was unified into an empire out of a loose configuration of feudal states. Collectively, they stretch from Liaodong in the east to Lop Lake in the west, from the present-day Sino–Russian border in the north to Tao River in the south; along an arc that roughly delineates the edge of the Mongolian steppe; spanning over 20,000 km (12,000 mi) in total. Today, the defensive system of the Great Wall is generally recognized as one of the most impressive architectural feats in history.

Media style: Gouache and Watercolour.
