Washing Silk in the Lotus Pond

"The pink lotus flowers are blooming in the pond while the white egrets are flying in the sky. The lady is ready to wash the silk but stopped to redo her hair. Her beautiful white arms are revealed from the long sleeves and her beauty shrouded in the clothes is thus betrayed."

Excerpt from the book, "Richly Adorned & Quietly Dressed," by Hua San-ch'uan.
