Treasure Ship (LE-37N)

The multi-masts sailing ship was invented by the Chinese around 200 A.D. The Chinese invented compasses which they were using as early as the eleventh century. During 1405 to 1433, the famous Chinese explorer, Cheng Ho, had made seven voyages to explore the western world. He had reached as far as the east coast of Africa and the Red Sea, and the time was 87 years earlier than Columbus's voyage (1492). Cheng Ho began the first of seven voyages designed to show the power of China in the northern Indian Ocean. These voyages spread the Chinese prestige and influence. Loaded with Chinese silk, porcelain, and lacquerware, the vessels visited ports around the Indian Ocean. Here, Arab and African merchants exchanged the spices, ivory, medicines, rare woods, and pearls so eagerly sought by the Chinese imperial court. The voyage ships became known as 'treasure ships' bringing back exotic plants and animals to Beijing. Although no two vessels are the same, PINN designer, Rungrat P. captured the well-known features which typify this fascinating vessel. The Chinese calligraphy written in the design means 'business success'. The treasure ship implies to business steady progress. May the chancy journey return home safely and be full of wealth and prosperity. Stitch 'treasure ship' for business good wishes. You are invited to discover and seek the fortunes.
