Chinese Cinderella By Elodie KUUNG FUUUUU Japanese Rule MANCHURIA Shanghai Fleeing Stances Categorization & Styles HI!
DAO ZI HAO! How it possibly started The Golden Lotus Controlling Women Feet Fashion FEET BINDING - foot binding started around 970 A.D.(when China was under the rule of Li Yu.)
- Foot Binding wasn't started to permanently deform feet.
-Li Yu's favorite consort, Yao-Niang, performed a dance on a golden lotus pedestal.
-Her feet had long strips of silk around it, sorta like a ballerina in toe shoes. Li Yu and other court maidens were awed by the beauty of her movement and "golden lotus" became a thing for delicately bound feet. -The feet binding started moving from dancing to
fashion for the upper class people, specifically
women. (It was a custom to last forever and ever...
but it stopped at some point in time.)
-Women began to bind their feet on a regular basis to their desired shape
-then the foot binding spread to all people of
all classes, not just the upper class. Feet binding became the essence of feminine beauty. -During the Song Dynasty, women's place in
the society dropped...extremely low.
-Women couldn't leave the house and they
had to obey their father, husband,
son(if widowed), and older brother(s).
-Women were also treated as property. They
could be bought, sold, and killed by their
father or husband.
-Binding women's feet became a
way to control them. -A long time ago in the semi-mythical Xia Dynasty,
there was a man, a man named Yellow Emperor Huangdi.
-He introduced some of the earliest fighting systems to China.
-He was a famous general before he became China's
leader. -Kung fu has hundreds of different styles.
-Each style has their own theme, known as families.
-Some styles imitate movements from animals and some get inspiration from Chinese philosophies, myths, or legends.
-There are also ways to categorize it, such as location. (Like Northern and Southern)
-Each category focuses on different things, but they try to do other things too. (To keep it balanced out, you know..yin and yang) -Stances show the foundation and form of a fighter's
-Each style has different names and variations
for each stance.
-The Horse stance and Bow stance
are examples of stances found in many styles. -The seize of Manchuria began in September 1931
-Manchuria had big potential with their industries, so
when it was taken over, the Nationalist economy faced
major damage.
-The seize was because China and Japan were arguing
over who owned the South Manchurian Railway
-The matter was about to be solved peacefully, when
a bomb had dropped onto the railway
-Then they started arguing about who dropped the bomb
-Maybe 200,000..or million died, but the Japanese
continued to advance
www.josephrupp.com/history.html How it all began What the Buddha says Just some facts Buddhism..(it's a religion) -In Northern India, someone named Siddhartha Gautama
started Buddhism.
-It began around 530 to 460 BCE.
-After it started, it began spreading into alot of the Far East. -Buddhism has about 376 followers
-Listed as the 4th largest religion after
Christianity,Islam, and Hinduism "Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions simply because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it." www.religioustolerance.org/buddhism Folklore, Chinese Folklore I'll show you my drawing later What it is said to be Chinese folktales are neither biographies or a
record of historical incidents, but people's artisic
creations...that can include biographies and
historical incidents. The Moon Goddess Calligraphy It's not what you think
it is <-Spreading-> MAXIMUS!!!!
read this! -Chinese Calligraphy is not a way to write stuff. It's an oriental art of expression and a branch of learning or discipline.
-[(hello elodieeee),<-Syeda]
-Chinese Calligraphy is still evolving and is an important part of Chinese Culture. Chinese culture spread to Korea, Japan, Vietnam,
Singapore, and other countries to.
-Within the culture was Chinese Calligraphy.
It became a unique feature in oriental art. wikipedia.org www.chinavoc.com/arts/calligraphy www.mysteriouschina.com/tag/chinese-folklore/ Only i will know why this key is here The Moon Goddess (Ignore This) factsanddetails.com/china.php?itemid=59 -January 1932 is when Japan attacked Shanghai
-There was alot of stealing and murder in the city
-American, French, and British troops helped China
-Bombs exploded in a boat, the Nanking Theater, and
near a French settlement
-There was a 3 month undeclared war until March 1932,
where a truce had been reached
-Later, Shanghai had still been captured in 1937
-Many Chinese had feld south to Yunnan and Sichuan (where the Kuomintang had their wartime capital in Chongqing)
-Air raids were launched in Chongqing in May 1939
-218 Air raids had happened over the next few years
-The city was in ruins and arond 20,000 people died
-The most deadly air raid in Chongqing was in June 1941, when 700 people suffocated in an underground tunnel in the air raid.
-A third of the population was defenseless A man named Hou Yi shot down the 9 suns and
the sun god, Dijun, banished him. Dijun also banished Hou Yi's wife, Chang'e. Hou Yi didn't really mind, but Chang'e missed her sister goddesses and heaven. For gods to keep their bodies in good condition, every three thousand years, gods must eat the peach of long life and drink the elixir of immortality from the Garden of the Western Paradise. This garden is tended by the Queen Mother Wang Mu, an old woman who has the fangs of a tiger and the tail of a panther.
Since Hou Yi loved his wife alot, he traveled to the Kunlun
Mountains to get the peaches and elixir...nevermind, the theme is "absence makes the heart grow fonder"

it's everywhere! TIS IS THY END!
