The painting is more than 500cm long and over 20cm wide, and features vivid scenes of people's lives from various backgrounds in the dynasty's capital at the time, Bianjing city, today's Kaifeng city, Henan province.

It took seven years to finish the replica, which is 18 meters in length and weighs more than 20 tons.
