Kan-oh Shaba-mon(Brocade With Pattern of A Carriage For The Emperor In The Han Dynasty)
Carved stones are typical of the Hou-han period (25AD-220AD) of ancient China. Myth, histories and life were the subjects ofthose carved images that well tell us customs in those days. This pattern is one of those and the carriage with a so-called "kagai" (a decorative canopy which appears like flowers) depicts the extravagance of the imperial life.
This brocade is executed to represent the magnificent grace of the carriage pattern modeled after the ancient design.
