CITY KIDS - Children of the 50’s

Beanie, Braids, Diamond Argyle & Red Sweater


Born in Shanghai, I emigrated with my parents first to Vancouver, Canada and then, in 1953, to Pacific Grove, California. I was in grade school then and already fascinated with the American way of life, especially the American way of dressing. I desperately wanted to wear American clothes so that I might assimilate as soon as I possibly could. My mother still wore her Cheongsam, the traditional slim fitting dress with a mandarin collar, while I began to dress American, happily sporting my new starched poufy dresses with layers of crinolines. All around me were boys and girls dressed as kids did in America in the 1950s and I wanted to be one of them. This was an important period in my life and I fondly remember what everyone wore. These two sculptures were inspired by my memories of that time.

FOX MASK

“Fox Mask” was inspired by the Gosho dolls of Japan, popular during the Edo Period in the 19th Century.  These dolls, created by the very best dollmakers, were highly sought-after, proud possessions. Usually designed as chubby boys, they were originally given as gifts within the Japanese Imperial Courts. The figure here portrays a boy holding a decorative mask of a fox. The fox, or Kitsune in Japanese folklore, was a symbol of superior intelligence, long life and magical powers. Gosho dolls, in addition to being portrayed holding a fox mask, were sometimes shown holding Noh theatre masks.

LADY PHOENIX

“Lady Phoenix” portrays an ancient Chinese woman wearing a tunic with embroidered Phoenix Birds on its flowing sleeves.  The image of the Phoenix dates back thousands of years to the very beginning of Chinese culture. According to some sources, the mythical Phoenix has its roots in a prehistoric, ostrich-like bird found in China long ago. The Chinese call the Phoenix Feng Huang as it incorporates “Feng”, a male bird, and “Huang”, a female one. The bird is a symbol of the union between femininity and masculinity, which the Chinese refer to as yin and yang.  The Phoenix also represents female virtues and this motif is often seen on the wedding garments of Chinese brides.
