Sericulture (The Process of Making Silk), early 1200s. Creator: Liang Kai (Chinese

Liang Kai was a court artist who was active from about 1201 to 1204 at the Imperial Painting Academy in the city of Hangzhou, a major silk weaving center from that time to the present day. Right Women prepare silkworm eggs, placing them on trays that are stored vertically on a frame. Center In the house at the right, the silkworms are placed on trays with mulberry leaves on which they feed. In the top center section, spinning frames for the silkworms are being prepared.

In the next scene, some cocoons have been placed in water heated by a fire to loosen the ends of the filaments that are later combined to form a silk thread.
