Old China?

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 23 September 2013 in Architecture and Portfolio.

You can't come to this village expecting to find the China of old. But, if you explore thoroughly, you may get a hint of days gone by. To do that, walk the path near the old walls surrounding the village.

Wonderful find, Steve. The element looks like a kind of the art work or pot, which was made in old days. There're several holes at top of it. What is it for? Have a nice day. :)

A great find, a mystery...what might that be?! A fountain? The all-textures wall and the green of the leaves make such a combination of colours!
