Wall mural paintings, based on the theme of Chinese history and traditional plays, have a long history in dynastic China. The earliest tomb frescos are from the Western Zhou period (11th century-771 BC). The art form advanced remarkably in the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220).
Many show honor guards, maidservants, and scenes of chinese feasts and hunts.
The art of wall mural paintings, artistic panoramas of Chinese culture, reached its first peak in terms of style, technique and subject matter in the Tang Dynasty, when China enjoyed national unity, economic prosperity, cultural advancement and increased exposure to foreign cultures.
