Variety within Antique Yao / Zhuang Ceremonial Scrolls – 1

On studying the pair of paintings that are as tall as I am,

Pair of Large Antique Yao ceremonial Scrolls

I am struck by the variety in 2 aspects: 1) facial features and  2) costumes

The diversity of faces shown is remarkable – we see not only a range of the facial features, but also a range of skin colors, eye shapes, cheek bone structure, nose structure and hair grooming styles!

What a delight to get a peek into the diversity that might have existed in that spot in space/time.
