Textile with Coiled Dragons, Jin dynasty (1115–1234), China. Plain-weave silk brocaded with metallic thread. The coiled dragon, as a pattern for princes' robes, dates from the Tang dynasty and was also used for garments in the Song and Xixia dynasties. This example is an early instance of a dragon with five claws. It is woven in a variant of the brocading technique first seen in a Jin-dynasty princely tomb of 1162.
