The Nine Dragon Screen is the oldest and largest glazed screen in China. It was made over 600 years ago of 426 specially-designed glazed bricks and is about 149 feet long. It is in the Palace Museum (Forbidden City) in Beijing. The area in front of the screen was being renovated when this picture was taken.
