12 February @ 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

Chinese-Phoenix-Crown.-Ming-Dynastys-Empress-Headdress-detail

Antiques & Design celebrates the Chinese New Year today with a favourite lecturer – Anne Haworth – who lived in Shanghai for seven years. Anne will regale us with the legend of the Phoenix and its symbolism for the Empress, just as the Dragon represented the Emperor in Chinese art. Not only a wonderful prelude to our March 12 lecture on Chinese ceramics, we will delve into the tradition of technical skill, inspiration and historical legend in Eastern decorative arts.
