Moon With Ancient Pagoda (Custom Print)
"When I was little, my grandma often told me mythical tales from Chinese folklore, in which deities lived in palaces in heaven. Now that I have grown up, I use photography to depict such scenes from these stories. The Jinyun Pagoda on Jinyun Mountain in Chongqing is a classical ancient Chinese pagoda and one of the stories features a Full Moon juxtaposed with this very pagoda. Using calculations from the app Planit, I set up a camera at a distance of 5.7 km west of the Jinyun Pagoda and shot with a 500 mm lens on the evening of 11 August 2022. At around 20:01, a Full Moon started to tower slowly above the pagoda from its left; at around 20:05, when the Moon and the pagoda were juxtaposed in the perfect positions, I pressed the shutter without hesitation to achieve this result. The pagoda in the photo appears as if it was a heavenly palace floating in the sky, in the embrace of the Moon." Liang Chen
Our Custom Prints and frames are all handmade to the highest standards. As each Custom Print and frame is made to your required specification, they take a little longer to prepare. Custom Prints are printed on sustainable, matt 250gsm conservation digital paper. Unframed prints are carefully rolled with acid free tissue paper inside a sturdy cardboard tube. Frames are made in the UK from sustainably-sourced woods.
Custom Prints (those which are customised by choosing a size and frame) are made to order and therefore take a little longer than our standard fulfilment times. Please read our Delivery and Returns page for our latest information about UK and international shipping.
Please check the size and frame options carefully so that you are happy as once ordered we will be unable to change.
Every purchase supports the work of Royal Museums Greenwich.
