Ancient China Doll

Yehey! I got a parcel yesterday from China. Well I have been waiting for this parcel for a long time, glad it came in great shape. I bought this on ebay for 99 cents and paid $16 bucks for shipping and handling....waaaaaaa! I have 4 Asian dolls now (Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, and China). I should have buy a Filipino doll when we went to the Philippines...lol!
This doll is one of the "beauty ladies of China". She is one of the 4 Chinese women who renowned for their most beauty in legendary ancient China. The Four Beauties are the most beautiful and significant women in ancient.

Their stories all are based on fact but they are also steeped in legend. The stories of the Four Beauties remained famous until today because of their effect on the Ancient Chinese Emperors and Kingdoms with whom they were involved. Some of the Four Beauties brought kingdoms and dynasties the ruin and most of them ended their lives in tragedy.
Xi Shi was a legendary beauty of the Spring and Autumn period (770-476 B.C.) in ancient China, "An apperance of Xi Shi is said to be so entrancingly beautiful that fish would forget how to swim and sink away from the surface when she walks by".

  6. Para kanino ba yung dolls, para sa private collection mo o para kay Akesha o para sa inyong dalawa, lol? Sayang nga, nasa Pinas ka na nuon eh hindi ka pa nakabili nang Filipina dolls. Maraming native dolls sa Filipiniana section nang mga big department stores katulad nang SM. Very meticulous yung research mo sa Chinese beauties ano? Hindi ba diyan kasama si Kwan Yin, ang lady goddess of mercy nang China? Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
