A garden's winter plants—the red berries of nandina and the delicate blooms of narcissus—flourish beside a garden rock and lingzhi fungus. The combination makes this subtle silk tapestry appropriate not only for seasonal wintertime display but for expressing congratulatory birthday wishes as well. Named after its components (nandina, narcissus, rock, and fungus), the pattern is called "heavenly immortal longevity fungus" (tianxian shouzhi), which can also serve as a birthday greeting.The Chinese tapestry-weaving technique (kesi) was sometimes used to produce textile panels that closely resembled paintings. This example bears the woven signature of Cui Bo (also pronounced Cui Bai, act. ca. 1060–85), a painter of the Song dynasty (960–1279). Paintings attributed to Cui Bo were favorite subjects forkesi weavers of the second half of the Ming dynasty.
