To be Miss Xishi is like to be a million times the Miss Universe. After all, she is the most beautiful in all of China.
I think 'history' has been exceptionally kind to her. She can do no wrong even if she did seduced and toppled a king (even if he was a tyrant)
Before painting her, I worried if all those accolades meant that she'd be a super diva; but, she turned out to be down-to-earth with innocence and purity as her weapons...
She finally has her happy ending with her sweetheart after all their turmoil. For that, I definitely had to include the lily-of-the-valley in her painting a congratulatory note.
