The legend of Miaoshan
Quick post today - some more items from the Chinese New Year festival which runs until February 21.
First up, is the lush gown from Junbug, named Quan Yin for the goddess of compassion. It's inspired by historic Chinese clothing, so it's a bit different from most medieval-fantasy gowns. But I think it could be a very stylish option for an aristocratic lady?
The poses are from the Mineko set by Posetivity. They include a fan, but I've not used that here, instead I've used some of the fans from Attic's gacha.
If you're wondering about the title of the post, it's one of the many tales surrounding the figure of Quan Yin.
Miaoshan was the daughter of a cruel king who refused to marry in accordance with her father's wishes, preferring to become a nun. He tried to enforce his will, eventually trying to have her killed.
Miaoshan suffered much, but it happened that eventually her father became ill, and she made a great sacrifice to heal him, whereupon he begged her forgiveness. You can read more here.
