This gorgeous woman is Shahrazad.
This woman did not use her femenine tools to attract and change the bloody habit of her husband, Shahrayar. She used her mind, her intellegence to soften the heart of a sadistic mind.
I wrote about Shahrazad in 2007, while writing about her statue in Baghdad.
The story of 1000 nights and one night is an inspiration to generations of story tellers, movies makers, musicians and poets.
It will remain so, forever and ever and ever.
