HI everybody,

I have managed to make pictures from the batik, the braid and the embroidery. Today I have just recieved a book called : The vanishing tribes of Bhutan, China, Mexico, Mongolia and Siberia. On page 68 is a picture from a similar embroidery piece like on my jacket. The article tells about the Ge Jia. This book is very interesting, not specialised on textiles but surely you find a lot of information about clothing. Andrew perthaps a good tip for you, in about 30 pages they tell about the Ge Jia, with a lot of pictures about clothing.
I get more and more convinced that this little jacket is also Ge Jia..........

What an incredible lotus hat! In the book ‘Hunan min jian mei shu quan ji’ on pp.58-59 there is a collage of children’s hats and several like this appear – without the photograph insert. I do think this is Han Chinese. The caption for this collage only states that the hats are from Hunan. I have never seen the incorporation of a picture into a piece before. All whom I have shown this to have found it quite extraordinary as it is not at all typical to include such an photo image particularly on a baby’s hat. Several thought it might be a Japanese individual and based on the possibility of it being one of the ruling emperors I went through the various official portraits of Japanese emperors and family as well as those of the last Chinese emperor but can find no significant match there. The mystery remains – “Who was this man?”
