The 85-year-old Wang Suhua is a inheritor of Bian-style embroidery, a national level intangible cultural heritage. Bian-style embroidery, an art form originating in Central China's Henan province that focuses on recreating historical paintings, has been known far and wide across China since the Song Dynasty (960-1279). To carry the art form forward, Wang has scavenged for antique embroidery pieces for research and innovated more than 10 new forms of needlework. In 1959, Wang completed her rendition of Riverside Scene at Qingming Festival (a renowned Song Dynasty scroll painting by artist Zhang Zeduan), which was a milestone event during the history of Bian-style embroidery.
