The Emporers Mother liked to sit on this ship made of marble. It didn't move or do much at all, and she didn't even like to look at the real scenery. She had mirrors installed so that she was constantly looking at a reflection of reality. Strange huh?
Army guys playing basketball inside the Forbdden City. I guess they've got some time off. I swear those guys are the Chinese version of those dudes that stand outside Buckingham Palace. No smiling and always looking for troublemakers.
A lion in the Forbidden City. These were everywhere, always two of them, one male and one female. This one is female, you can tell because there are babies under her left paw. The male has a ball under his left paw.
The Temple of Heaven. Built by and Emperor, this was the location of prayer for things such as a good harvest, good rain, ect. The three tiers of this structure represent Hell (lowest), Earth (middle), and Heaven (top).
