part 3 of my trop rambles: props

the fan that he holds is a traditional style of fan called 团扇 (tuan fan) and is hand made by a well known fan studio (you can call it the couture of fans). it’s made with traditional embroidered silk and bamboo. this is one of the very few times you’ll see a male character of a period drama to use a proper tuan fan instead of the general folded ones that were not popular during the Tang dynasty. you can find the studio here

this 蜀锦 (Shu brocade) machine that serves as a symbol of his “tailor prince” character was rented from the sichuan Shu brocade museum. this specific type of brocade is from the area of chengdu, sichuan and is one of the four great brocades of china along with the Song styled brocade from Suzhou, the Cloud brocade from Jiangsu and the Zhi brocade from Zhejiang. the Shu brocade reached its peak popularity during the Tang dynasty and had significant effects on the culture, economical development and aesthetics of the dynasty. in 2006 its weaving techniques became one of the first to be on the national intangible cultural heritage list. in 2009 it was listed into UNESCO’s intangible cultural heritage list.

Chen Kun actually learned how to weave it on the machine and was scared shitless every time he sat on it because he thought he might damage it.

this wind screen has one of the greatest works of art in chinese history and is listed in the top 10 chinese paintings. it is a painting from the Northern Song dynasty by the prodigy painter Wang Ximeng when he was 18 and now resides in the Palace Museum in Beijing. the painting is called Thousands miles of mountains and rivers and depicts the harmonious coexistence between humans and nature. the actual artwork is a lot smaller but super long.
