Artist Yang Hua Chun, who goes by Taiyangguodu on Deviant Art, has created the best (only?) GIFs of figures from dynastic/feudal China. There are two more images after the jump.
“GIF,” by the way, was the “Word of the Year” according to the Oxford University Press, and much like the Nobel Peace Prize, I tend to think the award as a prescription for what can be done in the future. These GIFs are fulfilling their promise.

Here’s the moving picture of the above.
