Abstract: Life portraits of the emperor in ancient costume appearing in Qianlong Years of Qing Dynasty have been drawn according to the ancient paintings collected in the imperial storehouse and added the image of Emperor Qianlong. In the portraits, Emperor Qianlong either travels around as a scribe or sits up to accept offerings as Manjusri. Under the strict dressing system of Qing Dynasty, the Emperor Qianlong in Chinese costume doesn’t exist truly. These life portraits of the emperor in ancient costume combine the fiction and reality. Scribe and Bodhisattva are self-expressions of Emperor Qianlong besides his identity as an emperor, and also his virtual identities which can’t be realized in reality.
