This wall scroll is discounted because of a very minor wrinkle. You'd probably not notice the issue if I did not mention it. In fact, this one almost passed inspection, as I could not decide whether to discount it or not. Just to be safe, it's discounted drastically for you so there are no misunderstandings etc.

This is the Enso circle, also known as a Zen circle. It can represent the cycle of life, karma, or the world. This one was painted by a Japanese master calligrapher, so just the calligrapher's fee is $180 plus the scroll materials and labor. This is a crazy bargain at $79!

Gary's random little things about China:

Crossing the Street: Human Frogger in China

If you are from my generation, you may remember the video game called "Frogger". It involved crossing a busy road while narrowly dodging cars and truck, often both in front of and behind you at the same time.

Well you can play real live Frogger every time you cross the street in China. It is perfectly normal to cross a four or six-lane road, one lane at a time. You stand motionless on the white, dashed line between lanes as cars and trucks whiz by you on both sides with only inches to spare. When the next lane is clear, you advance (there is no retreat in this game, that could get you killed, since drivers in China would never expect that).

If you did this in America, drivers would come to a screeching halt and think you were crazy (they might even tell you so, using colorful words and hand gestures). It is simply a different culture, or rather a different way of doing things in modern Chinese culture.
