This ornate scarf design celebrates a magnificent Chinese theatrical robe in The Met collection, which was originally made in the 19th century during the Qing dynasty (1644–1911). This elaborate silk robe with fine embroidery would have been worn by a performer playing a princess or a palace concubine. Phoenixes were used to signify the empress and other women at court.
