Xiang fei

Xiang fei, the Fragrant Concubine, is generally depicted with flowers and perfumes in the Chinese imperial court paintings I remember seeing. Her beauty and the fragrance of her body are her legend. In Chinese imperial paintings, there is the term “gong nu tu” or portraits of imperial concubines and courtesans.
