Figure painting may also refer to the activity of creating such a work. Figure painting is not synonymous with figurative art, which may depict real objects of any kind. Chinese figure painting strives to indicate vivid people's character by the render of environments, atmospheres, bodies and actions, then make a person a unity of form and spirit. Figure painting is the oldest element in traditional Chinese painting, as everyday scenes were portrayed on the painted pottery which is the representative of the Neolithic Age. That brings the progress on composition, types, forms, color tone as well as techniques of expression to Chinese figure painting. The modern artists of figure painting, not only look back to the past masters' techniques and styles, but also widely soak up the essence of western painting. Besides imagines of Buddhism and Taoism, emperors and beauties are also the main subjects in figure painting.
