Catalogue Note

Kesi is a type of silk tapestry which entails the intricate weaving by hand of decorative designs and brocades, sacred iconography or calligraphy. The expertise of the weavers is seen in the naturalistic and meticulous depiction of the subjects of boys at play and figures engaged in leisurely activities in pavilions within a vast landscape setting. A similarly composed pair of panels depicting scholars in a rocky landscape, but of slightly smaller proportion, was sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 11th April 2008, lot 2824. Another panel, woven with imperial seals, included in the exhibition Heaven's Embroidered Cloths. Four Thousand Years of Chinese Textiles, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong, 1995, cat. no. 118.
