YEAR: 4393
TYPE: Ink and color on paper, framed
OWNER/COLLECTION: Ministry of Education and Culture, Indralan National Collection
LOCATION: National Gallery of Indrala, Tian'an, Han, Indrala

OVERVIEW: This painting was produced by Lady Wang Feihung at age 15. The painting attracted the attention of the Xinyi Womens' University Faculty of Fine Arts which held a showcase of her work from May until June of 4393. In an artistic statement, Lady Feihung wrote:
...the emotional landscapes of our Southern provinces puzzle me; a riddle written by Heaven and the Gods, unravelled by our ancestors and yet never solved. A mysterious land of jade mountains reaching for the sky, low rivers and colourful fields. Images which have not yet faded from my mind; lest they ever do.

On June 25th 4393, the Lady donated her "Hills of Shu" collection to the Ministry of Education and Culture.

TITLE: Carved laquer phoenix box
ARTIST: Dong Zan
YEAR: 3477
TYPE: Carved laquer wood box
OWNER/COLLECTION: Mikado of Hulstria/Gao-Soto
LOCATION: Unknown
VALUATION: Approx. $30,000

OVERVIEW: This piece was created in the early Mingzhu Dynasty by famed woodworker and sculptor Dong Zan in or around 3477. The box has a hinged top incised with four large phoenixes around a lozenge-shaped panel, all within a ruyi cloud and strapwork frame with a keyfret band at the edges, all picked out in red, green and black and reserved on a brown ground, the sides similarly decorated, set with an incised gilt-bronze lock plate to the front face, a pair of hinges to the rear and a drop handle to the left and right side, the interior lacquered red.

The piece was gifted by the Tianshun Emperor to the Mikado of Gao-Soto in January 4408, filled with aged puer and green teas. The box was chosen due to the symbolic nature of the phoenix as the national animal of Hulstria/Gao-Soto, as well as the box having been created during the Mingzhu Dynasty, during which Indrala and Hulstria entered into the Phoenix and Dragon Treaty. The current location is unknown, but reasonably predicted to be among the Mikado's personal collection.
