——Exhibition Overview——

Part 4. Elegance of the South and Ease of the North


Tang styles were so influential that even after the Five Dynasties period, the patterns of flowers and birds of Tang were still adopted as the preferred decoration of textile. During the Song, Liao, Jin and Xia dynasties, flowers became the pattern of clothing widely-used by multiple ethnic groups. It is reflected through the decoration of textiles that no political confrontation could ever impede the historical trend of national fusion. As national fusion developed into pluralistic integration, the differences in social customs and aesthetic styles between northern and southern regions resulted in specific characteristics in decoration patterns. In general, the decoration of the Song Dynasties featured elegance and that of Liao, Jin and Western Xia tended to be wild and free.
