This photograph depicts the beauty of Diao Chan whose beauty was described as: “Beauty which outshines the moon and shames the flowers“. Diao Chan was one of the Four Beauties of ancient China. Unlike the other three beauties, there is no known evidence suggesting her existence, she is mostly a fictional character. Diaochan is best known for her role in Luo Guanzhong's historical novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms", which romanticises the events in the late Eastern Han dynasty and the Three Kingdoms period. In the novel, she had a romance with the warrior Lü Bu. This legend embodies in an exaggerated way her beautiful appearance in the eyes of the Chinese people.
