So who is Sister Kong?

SISTER KONG

Han dynasty (206 B.C.E. –A.D. 220)

Many know about the Japanese geisha but this tradition, and even its name, came from China. While the geisha tradition continues in Japan, the remarkable Chinese courtesan culture has passed into history.

These elegant, talented, yet “forbidden” women, became the fashionable women of their time, much like modern models and movie stars. They cultivated skills in music, poetry, painting, calligraphy – and of course flirting — and fascinated wealthy businessmen, high officials, learned scholars, even prominent monks.

A few became famous for walking a tight rope and performing acrobatics such as somersaulting or hanging upside down. Not only was there no net, sharp swords were pointed toward them, ensuring their death should they fall. One such famous woman was called Sister Kong…

Sister Kong was so famous her would-be clients had to compete with each other for their favours.

She used her influence to stop pillage by European soldiers and even, it is said, saved the life of the Empress.

Her favourite food? Bao of course, who can blame her.
