Wang Keju, an oil painter and retired professor at Renmin University of China's School of Arts, has invested four years into an epic work praising the Yellow River, which he says represents a spirit of perseverance in the cultural DNA of Chinese people over the centuries.

The work, titled Yellow River, is an imposing 161 meters in length, and includes 101 oil paintings, each standing 2 meters.

Wang recently donated this collection of paintings to the National Art Museum of China in Beijing. A shortened watercolor version of the work — a mere 23 meters long — is now on show at The Endless Life exhibition until Jan 31, 2021, at the Museum of Contemporary Art Yinchuan, in Ningxia Hui autonomous region.
