Secret Messages in Jade

Chinese jade carvings have symbols of butterflies, bats, pines, ribbons, and fruit. These designs are not only pleasing but also an important part of the Chinese picture-based language. These motifs and images communicate hidden messages, unexpected meanings for numbers, and appropriate gift recipients. Educator Yvonne Wolf will decipher some examples found in The Lizzadro Collection and share a shortcut to reading Chinese symbolism.

Lecture – 2:00 p.m. – 60 minutes
