Garden Wall With Black Chinese Dragons in Shanghai, China.


** **

The landscape gardeners of Shanghai China have an historic reputation and the Yu Yuan Gardens in the city of Shanghai China is a perfect example of their skills. They created the illusion of mountains, gorges, lakes and caverns in a thimble full of space. The limestone rocks in the city of Shanghai China gardens were embellished with lichens and mosses; the trees, pruned and trained like oversize bonsai, provided dappled shade.Stilted tea house in city of Shanghai China.The undulating bodies of black dragons crept along the tops of walls, protecting the city of Shanghai China Mandarins, in years past, as they walked through moon gates and pavilions. In a lake stood the stilted teahouse with its upturned eaves and beneath the balcony, shoals of goldfish gathered to catch the tidbits thrown to them by the city of Shanghai China people above.

Contrasting Styles Of Shanghai China Buildings

In many ways, the city of Shanghai Tea House was in keeping with the story of the Willow Pattern, with its ancient features of upturned eaves, curved roof tiles and pointed finials. In stark contrast was the Shanghai China exhibition hall we visited, a gift from the Russian Government. Here was an imposing portico with decorated columns; a building with an ornamental facade and three towered roof, then from the lobby a red carpeted flight of steps led up to the first floor.

Lacquered Screens In City Of Shanghai Exhibition Hall

Displayed in several glass cabinets in the Shanghai China Hall were priceless composite carvings in ivory, of Dragon Boats; Maidens in flowing gowns, with their entourage of attendants; a rising layer of figurines topped with a decorative orb; a three quarter curved composition also mounted with a decorative orb, showing a bearded wiseman and part of a pavilion. The carvings in the city of Shanghai China Hall were in exquisite detail and it would be difficult to even guess the number of hours the craftsmen had spent in creating such masterpieces. Also on display were lacquered panels and screens depicting scenes with mandarins and maidens, zigzag bridges and willows, pine trees and pavilions, and white feathered cranes.

It mattered not whether the objects of the city of Shanghai exhibits were representations of history or legend, for their beauty was there for everyone to enjoy, and displayed the skill and patience of the Chinese artists and craftsmen. Another feast of beauty would be waiting for us at Suzhou, which was our next stop.
