People lined up to wait for six hours to see one of China's most famous artworks, an exquisite 12th century scroll painting depicting the Song Dynasty capital of Haifeng during the festival of Qingming.

The painting, titled 'Along the River during the Qingming Festival,' has been copied several times, but the original is rarely displayed because it is so fragile. Zhang Zeduan (1085-1145) painted the scroll. It measures 24.8 centimeters high (9.76 inches) by 5.29 meters long (208 inches).
