[Story of Ancient Chinese]
Tang Dynasty (618-907 C.E.) is the period when the feudal system in Chinese started to flourish. Political power stabilized and the system gave everyone the same opportunity to become a court officer. It means people started to give more value for women...
This statue is the symbol of how powerful women are. More fatty woman means her wealth. And she looks strong and independent, right? (not like image of slender, pale, small-footed woman). They thought that women can do everything...
Yes this is the symbol of the most beautiful woman during the Tang Dynasty, they said...
But for me ➡ SWIPE ➡ SWIPE ➡
This is the best woman I ever meet... My woman... 😊
today’s variation on a famous quote: ‘We tell ourselves *LIES* in order to live.’ 🦉🦉🦉 今天的 「名言改一改」： 『為了生存下去， 我們對自己說謊。』 image: tea bowl, Song Dynasty [960-1279 CE]. this gorgeous tea bowl is covered in speckled brown, also known as ‘hare’s fur’ decoration; maximum diameter: 11.5 cm; from the National Palace Museum, Taipei/茶碗， 宋朝， 台北國立故宮博物院收藏 🦉🦉🦉 p/s: it finally dawned on me why this dark green cup lined with traces of gold is referred to as ‘hare’s fur’. the reason is that, in Chinese mythology, there’s supposed to be a Jade Rabbit/Hare [玉兔, pronounced ‘yu tu’] living on the moon. the cup’s multihues therefore invite comparison to the jade green rabbit’s fur, lit by golden moonlight. quite poetic, right?
