This style is shown quite clearly in the painting “Thanh Minh Thuong Ha Do” or the legendary painting “Phu Xuan Son Do Do”.

“Nam Do Prosperity Assembly” is divided into three parts, with rural scenery and extraordinary bustling scene in the capital extending to the gate of the ancient palace of Nanjing.

That is the scene of people’s life when living in a prosperous dynasty, under the rule of the wise man. Hundreds of shops, from tea shops, gold and silver shops, public baths to meat stalls, grocery stores… Even experts have estimated that more than 1,000 people are depicted in the picture.

Everything comes to life as it is. Unfortunately, for 500 years until now, no one has been able to find the person who painted this beautiful picture.

An anonymous man who changed history

Among the 1000 people painted in the hundred-year-old painting, posterity has discovered a man sitting in a corner small enough to change history when magnifying the picture 10 times.

This man was completely normal until he looked up at what he was wearing, which was a pair of eyeglasses. Experts and posterity are surprised because in the Ming Dynasty 500 years ago (about 1170 – 1242), eyeglasses were never born. How can the author draw so realistically like a pair of eyeglasses in modern times!

Perhaps the reason that the owner of the painting has not been found is because this artist traveled through space, bringing back a product of the modern world, so he did not want to reveal his identity.

Because according to historical records, glasses were first born in 1268 and appeared in China in 1270-1271 in aristocratic families. But at that time it was only shaped like a magnifying glass.

The first pair of glasses with frames was made in the late 16th century. At that time, the “frame” was just a string tied to the head. Missionaries from Spain were the ones who brought these glasses to Asia.

Thus, the most modern-like glasses should have appeared first in China… in the ancient painting “Nam Do Prosperity”. So experts say the discovery is shocking enough to change history.

So this painting so far has both hidden historical value and mystery that no one has yet explained accurately. Because netizens still think that these glasses don’t seem like an “inadvertent” drawing of the author!
