Dragon Robe (Ji Fu)

Abstract

Silk. This elaborately worked robe was the requisite attire for formal court affairs and is decorated in gold couched threads and multi-colored counted stitches on both sides showing nine five-clawed writhing dragons confronting flaming pearls amongst cloud scrolls and various auspicious symbols, with bats and formal pendants on a blue ground. The lower section and the sleeve ends show golden earth and water symbolism of crashing waves against rockwork outcroppings.
