A gauze with Nanjing brocade with images of rabbits and flowers
A product of Nanjing yunjin brocade, this is a fine piece of gauze dating back to the early Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Three rows of rabbits, chrysanthemums, and peonies have been woven into a yellow cloth. Some rabbits are depicted holding osmanthus, others bearing lingzhi fungi of immortality.
The creative gauze is specified with orderly and rhythmic composition. It is one of the gems in the permanent collection of the Palace Museum.
