Chinese Textiles: Textiles of the Liao Dynasty

"Chinese Textiles: Textiles of the Liao Dynasty"

Toyokan Room 5  October 2, 2018 (Tue) - December 16, 2018 (Sun)

  
Fragment of a Pao Garment, Design of paired cranes and clouds in brocade weave on a white ground, China, Liao dynasty, 10th century

Textiles of the Liao dynasty come in a variety of styles, including woven textiles and items with embroidery or dyed patterns. Comparing Japanese textiles created in the same period in history with these Liao-dynasty textiles would provide clues for uncovering the techniques used for Heian-period textiles, whose existing examples are limited in number.

Current exhibit includes:
Fragment of a Pao Garment, Design of paired cranes and clouds in brocade weave on a white ground, China, Liao dynasty, 10th century
Brocade, Design of flowers and facing birds on a light brown ground, China, Liao dynasty, 10th century (Gift of Ms. Tajima Fusae)
