Female Artists, including the female singers and dances, played an important role in society with their beauties and talents in singing and dancing. They not only witnessed the transformation of China's political system from primitive public ownership to private ownership, but also developed themselves in the context of polygamy. The period of Five Dynasties (907AD—960AD) was the continuation of late Tang Dynasty (618AD—907AD), frequent changes in the state made aspiring people devoted themselves to female artists culture. However, in fact, female artists culture became the shelter of scholars, they regarded girls in the whorehouse as metaphor target to express the loneliness, helplessness and indignation of literati. Therefore, I think that female artists culture had great significance to the development of Ci.
