  • Embroidered White Phoenix Notebook

    The main artistic feature of this notebook was extracted from a folding screen which had a white phoenix, a pine tree and chrysanthemums, which is now treasured in The Palace Museum. The white phoenix is used to represent high virtue and grace, and the delicate embroidery meant to bring out its beauty. With the chrysanthemum blooming on the left and the pine tree on the right, the white phoenix stands in the middle with a single leg on the trunk. The design of this folding screen originated in the Shang and Zhou Dynasty, and were only used by the noble families as it was a symbol of status.
