KUNLUN – THE ELIXIR CARPETS

In ancient China it was believed that images, if placed in the right positions, had the power to take life and action by moving through space and time, thus influencing the development of events. Even in the rituals of the court it was believed that the fantastic figures, the phoenixes and the flying dragons that decorated the pavilions of the Forbidden City, actively participated in the destinies of the empire and were vehicles to undertake the journey in search of the elixir of immortality.
The magnificent rugs from the Schneiberg Museum collection tell the story of this fascinating journey, the alchemical journey to the Taoist paradise: Kunlun.
