The Shenyang Palace was built in 1625, just as the Manchus were launching their triumphant China tour. Sprawling over 60,000 square meters, 100 buildings and 500 rooms, the palace was meant to show one and all that these new rulers from the north were not just another clan of horse-mounted toughs. Now it’s a museum, and features this jade seal bearing the title of the Taizong emperor. But it reads “Wendi” – royals in China get a new name in China after they die.

he Shenyang Palace Museum mainly collects historical relics and artistic works of the Ming and Qing dynasues, among which the relics dating from before the Manchu dynasty ruled the whole country, works of painting and calligraphy of the Ming and Qing dynasties, costumes of Qing officials, and furniture and ornaments from Qing palaces are especially famous.

Since they bloom most vividly amidst the winter snow, after most other plants have shed their leaves, and before other flowers appear, they are seen as an example of resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity and are a metaphor for inner beauty and humble display under adverse conditions. via mandarinforme.com #Painting #Qi_Baishi
