I finally made the trip up to Edinburgh last week to see the exhibition Ming: The Golden Empire at the National Museum of Scotland. The design team had done such a brilliant job with my illustration and it was great to see it on such a large scale. It made the long hours and intricate detail within the dragon and background elements all worth while. I took lots of photos a selection of which you can see below. I caught the exhibition in its final week so unfortunately it has now closed. However you can see more Ming artifacts at BP’s exhibition Ming 50 years that changed China which is on at the British Museum until January 2015.
