9 Heroines - [Lady White/ White Snake]
She quickly returned to the bedroom, while Xu Xian hurried out to prepare her some medicine. But when he came back with it, he found on the bed not his lovely wife but a huge white snake.
The young man collapsed to the floor, where Xiao Qing found him moments later. “Sister,” she called, “wake up! Your husband has died of shock!”
Lady White, again in human form, knelt by her husband, Xu Xian, and wept.

Fluorite is constituted by calcium fluoride. It naturally occurs in all colors of the spectrum. The colors may be very intense and almost electric. Pure Fluorite is colorless; the color variations are caused by various impurities, and may be white, purple, blue, red, pink, orange, yellow, brown, green, gray, and black. May also be multicolored and banded.
The crystal forms are most commonly octahedral and cubic; seldom dodecahedral. Crystals may also be a combination of octahedra and cubes, and dodecahedral growths may also be present, forming complex and interesting crystals.
Fluorite from this region is known by its great daylight-fluorescence. Under artificial light it is dark grey-blue and green but switches green and intense blue-violet under daylight (as in the photos).
Terracotta Daughters Prune Nourry
"In the continuation of her Holy Daughters project in India, Prune now reflects upon gender preference in China and infiltrates the local culture through the familiar symbol of the Terracotta Soldiers, by creating an army of 116 life-size Terracotta Daughters.
India and China alone represent 1/3 of the world population and both encounter a similar gender imbalance. This sociological phenomenon is due to the preference parents give to having a son. The number of single men has been increasing ever since the 80’s, and the misuse of ultrasounds to select the sex of the child. This leads to disastrous consequences for the situation of women in Asia (kidnappings of children and women, forced marriages, prostitution, population migrations…).
Emulating the style and ancient techniques of the Terracotta Warriors, Prune collaborates with local Xi’an artisans specialized in the copies of the terracotta soldiers to create the Terracotta Daughters project.”
