The carvings are created in a deep-relieved (陽刻) style. The abundant vessels are arranged in a “full” composition with the emphasized shapes of the vessels that stand out to impress the viewers. Such creation is intended to show off the character of the building and the social status of a prosperous family living in the building who possessed plenty of wealth and power. This type of design in woodworking was quite popular during the early Qing and throughout most of the Qing period. Carvings on old Chinese architectural woodwork best describe the development of Chinese social changes and cultural favorites through different dynasties and periods as they reflect trends and philosophy rendered by both ordinary people and the wealthy class. The outer new frames were created to match the carvings for displaying. In Chinese culture, vase in general symbolizes “peace” or “harmony” while pomegranate represents “fertility”, “generations to come”. Dimensions for each panel is approximately 6 7/8" W x 16 ½" L.
