Great Wall Of China Panoramic Picture

SKU: GW1B
This panoramic photograph of The Great Wall was taken by James Blakeway. It features a view of The Great Wall as it winds its way along the peaks of mountains while offering a line of defense against enemies. It was originally an earth wall and later connected during the Qin dynasty (221-206 B.C.) by slave labor. During the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), the wall took its present form. The brick and granite wall was enlarged and sophisticated designs were added. The watchtowers were redesigned and modern canons were mounted in strategic areas. Straw was used to build signal fires.

Great Wall of China Panoramic Pictures

Panoramic pictures of the Great Wall of China capture what is widely accepted as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The most historic sections of the Great Wall of China captured in panoramic photography were built as early as the 7th century B.C., up to 220-206 B.C. by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. Through the Ming dynasty, fortifications on the wall were further developed to its present form, where today's Great Wall panoramic images showcase its many watch towers, garrison stations and signaling capabilities.

As an ancient defensive line and method of transporting goods along the Silk Road, Great Wall panoramic images capture one of the most-visited tourist destinations in the world and one of the few man-made constructions visible from space.
