Master of queens’ crowns shows her latest

Share This Post

A 54-year-old experienced craftsman managed to replicate the exquisite crown of a queen who wore the original 1,400 years ago. The replica attracted many fans recently.

Earlier this year, Li Xin, a master of making ancient crowns, received the order to replicate the crown of the queen whose husband was the last emperor of the Sui Dynasty (581-618). The crown became a headache for her, as she didn't have complete data.

So she conducted extensive research on her own using pictures, records and even documentary videos related to the crown.

Based on such materials and her imagination, she managed to make the replica in two months. It has four layers and uses 5,000 man-made pearls and 600 plus man-made gemstones.

She said she used to spend over 10 hours a day polishing stones and arranging them for the challenging crown. She attracted huge attentions from the public.
