Suzhou Silk Art Creation Process
Forest's 21st Century Silk Road
The lady depicted in these portraits is Lady Peony, who loves spring and summer. Because of its vibrant color and size, the peony is the Queen of flowers in China. During the Tang Dynasty, when Wu Zetian (the first and only Queen who possessed the power of a nation), started to rule, she was so proud that she ordered all the flowers to blossom for her birthday, which was during the winter. All the flowers feared her power and started to blossom in the midst of a harsh winter, all except one, the Lady Peony. Of course, she was expelled, and Lady Peony moved to the east capital, Luoyang, and made it her home. Luoyang is 300 miles away from Xi??an, the capital during the Tang Dynasty, which was in the center of China. When Lady Peony moved to Luoyang, she used the power of her sheng playing to bring spring to town, and compelled it to stay longer than anywhere else. Peonies blossom in Luoyang every year and made the town famous for their flower festival. Now Luoyang has a nickname of Spring Capital. And, these portraits of Lady Peony, separately or together, are meant to bring spring into any home.
