  • Court Ladies Preparing Newly-Woven Silk...Court Ladies Preparing Newly-Woven Silk (Song Dynasty copy), a scroll with exact delineation and enriched colors attributed to painter Zhang Xuan of the TangDynasty (618-907), is a precious legacy of Chinese ancient portraits of ladies. Now collected by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the painting depicts a scene of Tang women pounding, sewing and ironing newly-woven silk. Pounding was an important step of the process, because newly-woven silk was hard and stiff in texture and could only be used after being soaked in water and pounded. To promote farming and sericulture, empresses of the past dynasties were all supposed to preside over the
    ceremony for worshipping the god of silkworm, which involved symbolic activities such as mulberry leaf harvest, silkworm rearing, and making silk clothes. The scene depicted in Court Ladies Preparing Newly-Woven Silk is considered the ceremony for worshipping the god of silkworm, reflecting the Tang royal family’s life.

  • GUI-Si Year

    According to Chinese lunar calendar, 2013 marks Gui-Si Year, or the Year of the Snake. In traditional Chinese culture, the snake is considered to represent the virtue of being grateful and repaying kindness. The famous folklore "Legend of the White Snake" has it that to repay Xu Xian for his kindness, the White Snake turns into a beautiful woman to marry him. The book In Search of the Supernatural of the Jin Dynasty provides another example. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 B.C.), the Marquis of Sui found a wounded snake when he was out walking one day. He immediately ordered his attendant to save its life with medicine. Later, the snake held a brilliant pearl in its mouth and presented it to the marquis in gratitude for his kindness. Hence, the image of a snake holding a pearl in mouth is often regarded as an auspicious sign. The snake on the stamp, inspired by the theme of "grateful snake," holds a precious pearl in mouth and transforms into Ganoderma lucidum grass at the tail, symbolizing good luck. Its body is decorated with patterns of spring peach blossoms, summer lotus, autumn chrysanthemums, and winter plum blossoms, implying peace all year round.
