This hand-painted panel, laden with meaning, was once an interior panel of a large cabinet. The young boy is dressed in a traditional red apron. Children were a popular motif in Chinese artwork. Prospective parents looked to them as symbols of good luck to encourage healthy pregnancies. We acquired this panel from a large collection of painted panels found outside of Beijing.
