Last year, famous mural master Lou Jiaben was entrusted to restore the murals of the Yellow Crane Tower in Hubei province's Wuhan city and also work on new murals to replace those that have become weather-beaten. Lou, who is almost 80 years old, has devoted his career to murals, especially those of the Yellow Crane Tower since the 1980s.

In 1983, Lou undertook the mission to create grand murals on the fifth floor of the Yellow Crane Tower. During the period from 1984 to 1987, he dedicated himself to make the paintings vivid and magnificent. The paintings mainly demonstrate the culture and history of the Yellow Crane Tower, and also depict illustrations of the legend and poems about the tower. This time, through his persistence and hard work, the mural named "Boundless River Flowing to the Sky's End" on the fifth floor of the tower has been brought back to its former glory.
