Artist's Description

额尔齐斯河( In Mandarin ), from its origins as the Black Irtysh in the Altai mountains in Xinjiang, China.
The Irtysh flows north-west through Lake Zaysan in Kazakhstan, meeting the Ishim and Tobol Rivers before merging with the Ob near Khanty-Mansiysk in western Siberia, Russia. The length of it is 4,248 kilometers (2,640 miles ).
A number of Mongol and Turkic peoples occupied the river banks for many centuries. In 657, Tang Dynasty general Su Dingfang defeated Ashina Helu, qaghan of the Western Turkic Khaganate, at the Battle of Irtysh River, ending the Tang campaign against the Western Turks.
Russians conquered in the 1580s. In the 17th century the Zunghar Khanate, formed by the Mongol Oirat people, became Russia’s southern neighbor, and controlled the upper Irtysh.
The Chinese Qing Empire conquered the Zunghar state in the 1750s. The border between the Russian and the Qing empires (the present border between Russia and Kazakhstan in the north and Mongolia and China in the south) was settled in the early 19th century.

The name of this part of shore is called " Wucaitan " in Mandarin.
