THERE is a striking difference between this elegant figure, and that of the Chinese lady. Nature is here embellished, not concealed, as in the latter. To our taste, the rich and beautiful effect of the bead-Work could hardly be surpassed; and it may be considered a national peculiarity of dress, since it is frequently imitated by the native sculptors. The image of the Snake King, for instance, at the fountain of Amjar, is full of this species of ornament. The turban, unhappily, is not national. It is a monument of the triumph of the Mussulman invaders, who have been victorious even over FASHION!
