Qinq Dynasty Shanxi Northern Elm Cabient

Description

Reflecting the si ping (known as four sides-square piece) style of construction, this Shanxi cabinet is constructed from northern elm. A black lacquer coat was followed by gilded designs across the front. The symbols represent the eight auspicious gifts, which are an important aspect of Chinese Buddhism. The endless knot design is located along the framework and represents the interweaving of wisdom and compassion. The interior features a hidden base compartment where finer silks were stored.
