This painting is discounted because of a few stray spots in the painting and a minor wrinkle.
This painting depicts the ancient Chinese philosophy that even when people who don't know each other come together, they can learn from each other.
One person must be the teacher and others learn. And in turn, the others become the teacher of the knowledge they posses.
It is important to remember that we all have something to teach, and we all have something to learn as well.

Gary's random little things about 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.
