Rivermen is a kind of Avatar NFT produced by Ponlaii Design Studio and sold in the form of 3D models. The total supply is 10,000. Unlike traditional PFP NFTs, Rivermen are rigged models with randomly generated appearances.
Rivermen is inspired by the Chinese famous painting Along the River During the Qingming Festival, which captures the daily life of people and the landscape of the capital, Bianjing during the Northern Song Dynasty. Successive scenes reveal the lifestyle of all levels of the society from rich to poor as well as different economic activities in rural areas and the city, offering glimpses of period clothing and architecture.
The whole scroll may seem large and jumbled, while it was clearly divided into three parts, from the suburb, Bian River to the downtown. In the five-meter-long scroll, there are a large number of different kinds of people and livestock such as cattle, mules, and donkeys. Carts, sedan chairs, boats, houses, bridges, towers, and so on have their characteristics, reflecting the features of the architecture of the Song Dynasty. Where there are people, there are stories.
There are more than 800 people in the whole picture, and each person has their own job. The people in the picture have nearly hundreds of occupations.
Rivermen is created by Ponlaii Design based on the Along the River During the Qingming Festival. 202 people with different occupations are selected out of the 800 people in the picture and were made into 10,000 NFTs called Pawns. Each Pawn features one of these 202 occupations.
Since the Song Dynasty, Along the River During the Qingming Festival have been adapted and copied through all dynasties. The Rivermen is the Web3.0 version of this famous painting, combining blockchain tech and traditional Chinese culture. Each pawn is unique and exquisite.
