Two Panels With Ten Phoenixes In A Garden Set Of 2 Framed Prints


Panel with five phoenixes in a garden. .

Reproduced on paper from an antique original in-house to restore damage and bring back the original colours. Printed with archival grade methods to ensure the highest quality and prevent ageing.

"Large pictorial silk tapestries such as this one were mostly woven in the imperial workshops in Suzhou, a textile center in southeast China. The bright yellow background, a colour exclusive to the emperor, further confirms its imperial origins. The five phoenixes probably refer to the five species of this auspicious bird in Chinese myths. This piece is paired with another five-phoenix panel in The Met collection, and the set could represent the five ideal relationships (wulun) in Confucianism: between father and son, husband and wife, emperor and official, senior and youth, and among friends."

      Framed ready to hang.
