Description - Splendid Slippers by Beverly Jackson
For over 1000 years, bound feet were a major sexual fetish for high-born Chinese men. Han women tottered through life on four-inch long Lotus Feet showcased in exquisitely embroidered, tiny shoes. From these tiny beginnings, textile scholar Beverley Jackson embarks on an exploration of Chinese art and mythology, social and political history, and a truly exotic eroticism.
