"Throne backs" were made for the backs of dignitaries' chairs and often follow a distinctive format: a facing five-clawed dragon in a field containing a repertoire of symbolic objects. In this example the central dragon is flanked by two further elegantly drawn dragons facing each other. The bottom border is defined by the classic arrangement of mountain, cloud bands and waves, the scalloped top border and sides are filled with floral designs
