Today is the first day of the Chinese New Year. The animal relating to the coming year is the sheep or goat or ram, (the six stroke Chinese character pronounced ‘yang’ symbolises a horned Caprinae creature). In celebration of the Chinese New Year, we republish Michael Franses article on classical Chinese carpets from the collection of the Beijing Palace Museum from HALI 173. Read the full article here.
