Panel with the moon goddess and attendants


Not on view

This ornate brocade represents the celestial garden on the moon, where the goddess Chang’e (dressed in a red robe and blue skirt) is accompanied by attendants bearing a scroll, flower vase, lingzhi magic fungus, and ruyi scepter, respectively. Her identity is revealed by the rabbits at her feet and the osmanthus branch in her hand.
