    Painting pictures inside objects is a peculiar Chinese traditional painting craft. It originates from painted pictures inside of snuff bottles in Qing dynasty. The technique of this painting is to use the special brush to stretch in pot billets made of glass or crystals and paint fine and delicate pictures by hand. It is favored by many collectors due to its elegant style and small and exquisite appearance.

    Picture painted inside art has Jing, Ji, Lu and Yue four genres. It has been listed by the National Intangible Cultural Heritage Protection. Hengshui, Hebei Province, the birthplace of the highest level picture painted inside art---Ji, is named 鈥淗ometown of Chinese pictures painted inside鈥?
