Hundred-bird coat for Guzang Festival
Gift of Phyllis A. Kempner, Ph.D. and David D. Stein, Ph.D.
A long, light tan coat or jacket made of cotton faced with flattened cocoon silk and embroidered in billiant colors using floss silk over a cut out rice-paper pattern. Long narrow lappets, each terminating in a tassel made up of glass beads and chicken feathers form the lower part of the jacket. Jackets of this type are worn in fertility festivals.
