Les arts chinois de l’entrelacs

L’art de la vannerie  (ou du noeud ?) : 中国结 zhong guo jie

Chinese knotting is decorative in nature even when making useful objects like buttons or curtain tie-backs. Tracing the evolution of this art form is difficult because little, if any, written reports exist on this subject. Figures of knotting objects appear in painting and sculpture that date back to ancient times. Remnants of these objects are hard to find since, the cords, made of fibers, disintegrate with age.
