Fantastic

Terry took all of these photos in the Shanghai Museum when we were there with Ken over Christmas. This first set were of articles which date back to the Iron Age.

Look very closely at the next one. It the same on the back and sides (it was about 4″ thick) as the front – all individually carve Buddhas. An amazing amount and piece of work.

Chinese hieroglyphics anyone?

This is an example of ethnic dress in China – a striking resemblance to some North and South American Aboriginal dress.

Finally, this just blew Terry away. It is a jacket (and there are pants as well) made out of salmon. Amazing. I’m going to take the photo to the Fabric market the next time we go…
