Inhaltsangabe: Bejewelled women, embroidered robes, hairpins inlaid with kingfisher feathers, and delicately painted fans conjure up a lost world of the rich elite of imperial china.
This was a worlf of spacious mansions and gardens, of high-ranking officials and wealthy landlords, of their virtuous and accomplished wives and daughters, and of a domestic life conducted with decorum and taste.
Adorning The Emress tells another story: for the women of the elite, no less than for those in peasant homes, bound feet and a strict social code kept them confined within their imprisoning courtyards. Theirs was a world as much of cruelty and sorrow as of grandeur and luxury.
