The backboards of each window are images selected from classic ancient Chinese paintings, a panorama of rivers and mountains. A series of soft sculptures made of brocade representing the images are displayed in the windows.

“The art form is full of Chinese characteristics and it’s very eye-catching," a Parisian spectator told the People’s Daily.
