Flower Decoder
Explore a Chinese handscroll of the “one hundred flowers” motif from the Ming dynasty (1368–1644). Meant to be viewed from right to left, the painting begins with spring flowers and ends with winter blossoms. You will be able to locate all identifiable flowers (more than a hundred) and learn more about five blossoms that are important in China: cymbidium, peach blossom, osmanthus, narcissus, and peony. To have one hundred flowers bloom at once is especially auspicious and expresses the sentiment, “May blossoming flowers bring prosperity” (huakai fugui).
