Chinese Embroidery of 12 Animals

Embroidery, a folk art with a long tradition, occupies an important position in the history of Chinese arts and crafts. It is, in its long development, inseparable from silkworm-raising and silk-reeling and weaving. The art became widespread during the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.-220 A.D.); many embroidered finds date back to that period. Embroidered works have become highly complex and exquisite today.
