This rich example of remarkable artisanship - Chinese silk painstakingly hand embroidered panel in mother of pearl inlaid master jointed rosewood frame is likely from the Zhejian Province. The excellence and detailed artistic work of this refined art includes the mythical Phoenix bird, a symbol of high virtue and grace and bringer of peace and prosperity, the sacred good luck magpie, the auspicious crane of longevity, song birds, roses representing love, nature's wisdom and good fortune prayers (top right).
