Imperial Dragon Robe

One section of the museum was a hands on area dedicated to artists of any age allowing them to create some wearable art.  In there was this beautiful blue silk embroidered with gold thread semi-formal court robe.  The artist is unknown and it is from the early 18th century.  It definitely communicates status and power.
