Night Revels of Han Xizai[edit]

Original - A 12th century remake of a 10th century original by Chinese artist Gu Hongzhong. Keep in mind, this is only one half of the painting; the other half can be found here.
Reason
I've placed this under peer review for a week now, but no replies; I'm no expert, but it did not seem to conflict with the listed requirements for a featured picture. The painting's rich textures and hues complement its historical significance, as it displays furniture, clothing, table wares, musical instruments, and elite social life in China during the 10th century while also serving as a showcase for the technical achievement of Chinese painters during the period.

  • Support per nomination. Fascinating social document, encyclopedic at many articles. DurovaCharge! 10:31, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Reluctant oppose because of small size. Yes, the larger dimension is well over the 1000 px "required" minimum, but with the height less than 400 px, I just can't see the details clearly. --Janke | Talk 11:43, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Strong oppose, this isn't so much about the content as the scan quality. And this scan is just mediocre. So while I have no objection to the subject matter becoming featured... we will need a high quality scan of it. gren グレン 13:55, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose There is an obvious stitch/color band to the right of the center. If this can be fixed I'd be willing to change my vote. --ErgoSum88 (talk) 19:47, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
I wish I knew how to fix it. I was not the original person to scan the image, and unfortunately I have no means of scanning it from somewhere else. 'Tis a shame.--Pericles of AthensTalk 19:59, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Reluctant Oppose as per Janke. A larger scan would be welcome. Matt Deres (talk) 19:58, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Night Revels of Han Xizai edit[edit]

Stitched/corrected version - A 12th century remake of a 10th century original by Chinese artist Gu Hongzhong. This is the full version of the painting.
Reason
I've taken the liberty of stitching together the two halves of the painting. I've also corrected the color band that exposed previous stitching.

  • Support as nominator I will point out the obvious and leave the rest up to the voters. Its a low resolution scan, and there are gaps in places where the scan was stitched together, including the middle where I combined the two versions. --ErgoSum88 (talk) 03:01, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
  • Support! Lol.--Pericles of AthensTalk 01:24, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

<rant>Do NOT include more than one nomination on a page. I find multiple noms on the same page extremely annoying - it messes with the archiving schedule as I cannot archive the above nom until this one is complete. </rant> MER-C 03:02, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

  • Withdraw I apologize, I didn't know any better. This one isn't going to pass anyway. I withdraw my nomination. --ErgoSum88 (talk) 18:54, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
