Yu Zheng emphasizes the difference in style compared to Story of Yanxi Palace which used a lot of silk. In Tang Dynasty Women, Yu Zheng pursues the look of painted murals which is rich in color but not gaudy.

He also says that the Tang Dynasty he had in mind was the picture of the old city of Chang’an that was embroidered into the historical tapestries.  Yu Zheng explains that the way the Tang Dynasty is being portrayed now has too much Japanese influences which shouldn’t be the case.  In light of this, they had to take another look at Tang Dynasty as written in history, such as ancient murals and portraits.
