[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This image is a follow-on to my previous upload. He is one of the two discoverers of the Terracotta Warriors and it is a composite image showing him autographing a copy of the book on that topic, of which he sells many in a nearby shop. I gestured that I would buy a copy if he would autograph it and if I could take as many photo's as I wanted, with which he was happy. It was a decisive moment in his life when they discovered that phenomenal treasure - referred to as the eighth wonder of the world. Being illiterate, when Bill Clinton asked him to autograph the copy he had bought, he could only make a cross. By now he was able to produce his signature - and perhaps some or other brief message - my Mandarin is limited to a few very basic sentences only.

Hi Neels,
Once again I can not understand 66 views and not one comment / critique. Excellent compilation of the history which is so important as it changes the future of our world or history in the making.
