Dongping County

Dongping County is a county in the Southwestern part of Taian Prefecture of Shandong Province, China. In 2007 a remarkable series of well-preserved frescoes dating to the Western Han Period was discovered in a tomb as construction workers were excavating for a planned shopping mall. The frescoes show, among other things, one of the earliest pictorial representations of Confucius.
