Why this is a
Masterpiece

According to current research, the very well-preserved dress with excellent and beautifully embroidered motifs of two dragons playing on the abdomen part belongs to the category of theatrical costumes. This type of garment was designated for high ranking military chieftains.

History of the Object
In 1909, Otto Kowarski donated his brother Ferdinand's collection to the National Museum in Crakow. Ferdinand had held the post of architect at the Austrian-Hungarian Embassy in Beijing. The other part was obtained from his wife, Celina Kowarska, in 1927. An assortment of fabrics and garments, 66 exhibits in total, is a significant grouping among the 295 arts and crafts objects donated.
