font size    

The image of Emperor Kangxi (1654-1722) of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) came back to life on computer's screen on Wednesday. "The portrait is 99 per cent close to Kangxi at the age of 50", said Zhao Chengwen, chief professor with the Chinese Criminal Police Institute. It is the first of its kind that China has made for an emperor's portrait on computer. The image is reproduced on the basis of many portraits preserved at palaces with special computer software, said Zhao who once produced pictures of a well-reserved corpse unearthed at Mawangdui in Changsha, central China's Hunan Province and pictures of a princess who lived more than 500 years ago in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). The use of painting for making portraits is also the first of its kind in the country.
