Description
Xi Shi 8" Jade Statue on Rosewood StandThis is an early 20th Century hand carved statue of Xi Shi, literally "(Lady) Shi of the West" was, according to legends, one of the renowned Four Beauties of ancient China.Xi Shi's beauty was said to be so extreme that while leaning over a balcony to look at the fish in the pond, the fish would be so dazzled that they forgot to swim and sank below the surface. This description serves as the meaning behind the first two characters of the Chinese idiom 沉魚��, 閉月羞花, referring to the Four Beauties, which is used to compliment a woman's beauty, meaning one is so beautiful she sinks fish and entices birds to fall, eclipses the moon and shames flowers, (literally "Fish dive")Item is located in Corona Del Mar, CA.
