The formal yellow ground silk Dragon robe is embroidered with twelve small motifs: sun, moon, constellation, mountain, dragon, flower creature, axe head, back-to-back ji, sacrificial vessels, waterweed, flame and grain, known as Twelve Symbols of Imperial Authority. Worked in satin stitch in shades of blue, green, red and pale violet and couched in gold-wrapped threads, with a five-clawed front-facing dragon on the chest, back and shoulders, each encircling a flaming pearl among the twelve symbols, in multi-coloured counted stitch, all above rocks and waves, and a waist band with two confronted dragons at the front and back. A square flap at the side opening enclosing one dragon, above the pleated skirt with eighteen dragon roundels above a broad frieze of two pairs of confronted dragons chasing flaming pearls among clouds, bats and precious objects above foaming waves, the interior flap with an additional dragon and flaming pearl and another dragon roundel. This magnificent robe embodies powerful symbolism associated with the emperor’s royalty and dominion.
