city of ancients

actually let me tell you sometimes museums with chinese stuff will have these huge intricate detailed depictions of ancient city life and one of my favorite things to do is zooming onto one single tiny face to appreciate how wacky it is. someone made that shit hundreds of years ago on a scroll/panel/wall ten feet across like “who gives a shit it’s not like anyone’s gonna see the details or whatever”. I give a shit. and I love it.
