Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is an important artifact for studying the culture of 13th Century Mongolia. It is a rare artifact of cord–edged applique work. The garment has a slanted collar and a flared skirt. The waist of the garment is pleated. It was made from silk and has been embroidered with original Mongolian patterns. The lapel, collar, the sleeves and the garment are decorated with the "horn" ornament. The original colour is unknown, today’s colour is light grey. Part of the garment is missing.

History of the Object
This is the garment of a Mongolian nobleman of the Mongolian Empire at the time of Khubilai Khaan. Khubilai Chinggis Khaan’s grandson (1215-1294) established the Yuan Dynasty as part of the Mongolian Empire. Khubilai became the ruler of Mongolia, Tibet, Korea, Manchuria and North China. Khubilai transferred the capital of the Mongolian Empire from Kharakhorum to Dadu (the site of current Beijing).
