The set comprises ten of these green jade pieces. The Manchurian term mulan means “whistling to the deer,” which was part of the annual deer hunt at the Mulan Paddock where the Qing emperors (especially the Qianlong and Kangxi Emperors) enjoyed thoroughly excursions. The Qianlong Emperor wrote down the trials of the hunt and his thoughts on the subject in these accordion books, believing the annual hunt to be an integral part of training for his Eight-Banner warriors.
