Lau Lu La Toy and Hoshi
23"h x 9"w x 7"d
Lilly Yeh, my professor of art history at the Philadelphia College of Art, would often say, You can tell the true nature of a culture by how they treat their women. She would speak of the decadence of the Han Dynasty, when consumption was erotic. (A real beauty had pale skin and a delicate cough.) Like Lilly Yeh, Lau Lu La Toy is a close observer of mores who hopes to profit from American styles. To that end, her granddaughter is here packaged as a consumer confection. In the market, she asks of passersby, Isnt she a perfect little doll for rich soon-to-be-husband? She bring much luck to family.
