Our Inspiration: Velvet Textile for a Dragon Robe

China, Qing dynasty

Silk velvet with weft patterning in silk, metallic thread, and feather thread; 17th century

Purchase, Friends of Asian Art Gifts, 1987   1987.147

This rare piece illustrates the early stage of the design of dragon robes during the Qing dynasty (1644-1911). The size of the dragon in comparison to that of the robe, as well as its power and ferociousness, continues the design style of the Ming dynasty (1368–1644).
