Dhr. Joost Kolkman, a professional photographer has visited the Restorient Studio to take a photographic record of the finished hand scrolls.
The scrolls were photographed in extraordinary detail, with three different light sources being used to capture the texture of the paper fibre, the lustre of the gold and silver leaf and the palette of vibrant colour.
The photographs were taken in 8.0cm sections advancing across the entire 28.88 metres and will be stitched together using digital software later. The 27.8cm height of the scrolls will be recorded in 5,000 pixels which means the length of the scroll will be reproduced in a mind blowing 500,000 pixels!
