THE STORY BEHIND

In March of the year 353, a group of esteemed scholars gathered at the Orchid Pavilion. Inspired by the stunning landscape, a timeless preface of an anthology of poems was composed. Calligrapher Master Wang Xizhi, spoke eloquently of the brevity of human life and the ageless philosophy of the universe. This silk scarf, inspired by the Shen Yun dance Poets of the Orchid Pavilion, sets the text of this timeless essay in traditional blue and white porcelain colors. Bordering the text is the classic landscape art of mountains and streams, affirming ancient Chinese philosophers’ deep respect for nature and their humility in the transience of human life. 

The Fan Necklace and Earring:

The folding fan has many uses and has a long history in China. Scholars often used fans as accessories, and would sometimes write calligraphy or pictures on them. Ladies used folding fans mostly as props for dancing and artistic purposes. Shen Yun dances depict both male and female fans. This beautiful collection redesigns these fans for everyday use.
