This is a great wall scroll if you were born in the year of the monkey.
Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This is a very unique form of calligraphy. It's a Chinese character that is made to look like an actual figure. In this case, a frisky monkey. The monkey is probably meant to represent the Monkey King from the novel, "Journey to the West". This particular monkey was immortal.
The large character/monkey is also a representation of (shou) which means longevity and long life in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Gary's random little things about China:
If you come to China, save your small change...
In Beijing, the government recently passed a law against charging money for using a public toilet.
However, in other cities and towns around China, expect to pay between 2-5 mao (about 3-5 cents) for the use.
Bring your own toilet paper, or expect to pay 5 mao for a small pack of tissue as you enter.
In my opinion, the best public toilet in all of China is at Tian'anmen Square.
This public restroom is not only clean, but also features its own gift shop.
