More About this Item


Description: A 'hundred boys' embroidered panel the white silk ground decorated in colours with the auspicious 'hundred boys' joyfully engaged in various pursuits, some flying kites, reading or playing games, others in a 'dragon' procession carrying banners and lanterns with a Buddhist lion float, and others rowing a dragon boat among lotus and willow trees, all within a fenced garden setting, mounted and framed 172.5 x 96 cm overall OTHER NOTES The hundred boys theme was frequently employed at weddings. The hundred boys refers to King Wen of the Zhou dynasty who had ninety-nine sons and adopted one more to make a total of one hundred. This theme symbolises the wish for an abundance of sons and continuation of the family line, as well as the wish for the generations of these families to celebrate success in the imperial examinations.
