闺中少妇不知愁,
春日凝妆上翠楼。
忽见陌头杨柳色,
悔教夫婿觅封侯。

(In Her Quiet Window
Too young to have learned what sorrow means,
Attired for spring, she climbs to her high chamber.
The new green of the street-willows is wounding her heart,
Just for a title she sent him to war.)

---Wang Chang Ling

It's a very good piece of art. Some things look like if there cut out like the bottom flowers, eyebrows, and snail.

thank you! I'm glad you like it :-) The poem that inspired it really reminds me of a fairy tale too, it's one of the reasons I like it so much.
