Woman's Informal Robe with Garden Roundels


Not on view

The roundels on this robe show garden rocks with flowers, fruit, and auspicious elements such as the endless knot and bats ( fu, a homophone with the word for good fortune). At the lower edge of the garment, two pairs of Chinese lions gambol with beribboned balls in a flower-filled garden setting.
