Power Dressing

Visited ACM today for the "Power Dressing: Textiles for Rulers and Priests from the Chris Hall Collection".

Pretty interesting exhibit. For one, court officials of the Ming & Qing dynasty wore insignia badges to differentiate their ranks by using different animals, e.g. tiger, pheasant, mandarin duck etc.

Seeing the costumes dating back to 11C really makes one wonder about how far mankind has come.
