▲ “The Lady Lady of the Flower” was written by Zhou Yan in the Tang Dynasty. In the painting, the aristocratic women combed high, wearing flower crowns, golden walks, wearing thin gauze, long skirts, and a soft red puppet around the arms.
When it comes to the “fairy” in Chinese mythology and legends, people’s minds often appear light and dusty figures. They are wearing a gauze and long skirt, especially a lingering puppet lingering between the fiber arms, which look very elegant. trend”.
This is a long and soft ribbon -style long towel. It appeared on the idol of the Greek period of West Asia. Later, it became the accessories of heavenly flying in Buddhism.
At that time, it was made of silk fabrics, and the tip of the upper width and lower tip was tail -shaped. When the puppet was mopped, it was like a swallow dance, which was in line with the temperament preferences of people’s “like a shocking, gentle and traveling dragon”, and it could cover it. The wind and warmth are both beautiful and practical.
In the Tang Dynasty, the material life was abundant and the social atmosphere was open, and the way people pursued the beauty of clothing became more diverse, so the puppets gradually prevailed. Its shape is narrowed and lengthened, also known as a coat or scarf, which is painted with exquisite patterns, also known as “painting”. The word Panbi explains its two ways of wearing, one is “帔”, put on the shoulders, and hangs from the sides of the chest. The texture is thicker; , But the two ends are wrapped around the arm, the texture is thin and light, and the length is more than two meters. It is used for ritual or decoration.
“Practice” tells the complicated processes such as practicing, dyeing, sealing, and rectification, which will eventually have a soft, pure and shiny effect. The drift effect in the processing sequence is excellent, so that the puppet is mainly white. Most of the other bright monochrome puppets are due to various plant dyes on the Silk Road, and the superb textile dyeing technology and machinery of the Tang Dynasty, different colors and diverse textures can be presented. The change of technology has made it a higher level of artistic sense of art, and it is more popular with women. In the early Tang Dynasty, the legendary book “Biography of Baijiang President White Ape” had a phrase “dozens of women, serving fresh Zezawa”, and regarded “Piece” as a reputation of women’s clothing. It can be seen that it is widely worn.
However, even extensive in the puppet is spread between palace noble women. Ordinary people are busy working and suffering from their livelihoods. They are “short brown in cloth”. Only the queen, the concubine, and the female officials, maids and other women have a leisurely and to pursue honor and gorgeous costumes. In “Gong Musicu”, the women sitting on the square table wearing corollas, combing vertebral buns, and wearing puppets were worn. The woman in a red puppet in “The Ladies of the Flowers” was soft. The women in these two paintings come from the noble class.
Some scholars believe that another reason for the prevailing in the Tang Dynasty to be attributed to the development of music and dance. As the court of the Tang Dynasty introduced the dance music and dances of the Western Regions, the strange costumes were also imitated by the palace people, and it was a shot of the dance of Datang dance and the feminine beauty of the dancer, so it gradually became an important prop in the Tang Dynasty dance clothing. In “Dinner Xiang Pavilion”, there are “dance red skirts and long sleeves”; “Scarf Dance Pictures” in “Scarf Dance”; The dancer of the dancer rotated in Xiliangle.
Therefore, people are often inferred that in ancient Buddhist sculptures and murals, those women in the puppet were likely to refer to the dance costumes of the Tang Dynasty.
