The experience of art itself can be an intimate one, and this bed canopy, hand-painted over 100 years ago by an artist in Canton, was more intimate than most. Delicately painted birds and tree peonies, come to life as symbols of prosperity and good fortune. Surrounded by complementary paintings, the bed created an enclosure, a style popular in southern China at the turn of the century.
