Captured on this exquisite embroidered scroll, the radiant sun shines down on blossoming crabapple flowers. A bird perches at ease on a branch, while another descends from the sky, drawn to join its companion.

Various stitching techniques bring out the distinct features of the branches, leaf veins, flower stamens and bird feathers, with each detail vividly portrayed. A masterpiece that captures the essence of spring’s beauty! Collection: Palace Museum.
