Adorning The Empress

3.5 of 5 stars 3.50  ·  rating details  ·  2 ratings  ·  0 reviews
Bejewelled women, embroidered robes, delicately painted fans and exquisite shoes conjure up a lost world of the rich elite of imperial China. This was a world of spacious mansions and gardens, of high-ranking officials and wealthy landlords, and of a domestic life conducted with decorum and taste, a world as much of cruelty and sorrow as of grandeur and luxury.
