This souvenir is sold on the occasion of Asia Society Hong Kong Center’s exhibition, Bat Cave: Treasures of the Day and Creatures of the Night, from 16 September 2015 to 03 January 2016. Bats are an auspicious symbol in China as the word for “bats” in Chinese is phonetically similar to the word for “blessings.” Bats were especially popular during the Ming and Qing dynasties, and could be found on a wide range of objects from folk art to court commissioned pieces. Despite the frequent appearance of bats in Chinese history, little attention has been paid to them.
