Two wild geese rest on the shore in this tapestry of colors against a light blue background. One bends down searching for food as the other flaps its wings, the forms of the motifs simple yet natural. Beside them are a lake rock, hibiscus, and reeds and grasses. Lotuses are in full bloom as a branch of cassia droops into the scene, the air filled with a rainbow of clouds to give the image a very rich yet rustic feel. The weaving technique is regulated and the pattern tight in this work, especially where many strands of colored thread are twisted together to form an exquisite range of colors. Of special note is the twisting of gold foil strands into the weaving, yielding a bright and glossy effect. As for technique, the "long and short propping" method renders the effect of graded shades from light to dark that suggest color washes. The geese feathers and water ripples are all patterned, but the flowers and leaves are animated and natural, making this a fine example of Sung tapestry.
