About the scroll
The Harvest of Endurance is a 50-metre scroll held by the National Museum since 1992. Its 18 panels depict survival and resourcefulness across two centuries of Chinese settlement in Australia.
The scroll was created by Mo Xiangyi, with the assistance of Wang Jingwen and Mo Yimei and sponsored by the Australia–China Friendship Society for the Australian Bicentenary.
