The WeimaoBy susan wright
The Weimao (Veil Hat) was one of the most distinctive head coverings during the Sui and early Tang periods. Originally adopted from the nomadic peoples of Central Asia as a protection against the wind and sand blasts, it was quickly adopted by the women of Sui and Tang China.
This is an original painting on a stretched linen canvas, large format, heavy custom-made wooden frame, signed and ready to hang, Acrylic, 61 x 61 x 7cm.
