Empress Wu and the Spread of Buddhism


I need a 10 page essay (double spaded) with at least 5 scholarly articles with Chicago style footnotes and citations concerning the rule of the 1st and only Chinese Empress Wu during the tang dynasty. The essay should surround the buddha statue she commissioned the colossal Buddha, which has feminine features and is one of the first true examples of feminism in an ancient time. The essay should however also cover the wide spread of buddhism throughout china during this time, how the tang dynasty government ruled china as well as the spread of arts and culture along with Buddhism.
