In Huzhou we saw this interesting sculpture of what seemed to be a food vendor in the old days, and my mom was certainly more fond of the man in the sculpture than were the rest of us. Her “interaction” with the sculpture actually seemed to make the entire scene come alive – how amusing!

Many sculptures are scattered around Shamian Island in Guangzhou, depicting traditional Cantonese life in the old “Xiguan” area of the city back in the days. One of my favourites is that of an elderly man taking his caged pet bird out for a walk, a rather common sight in the old days in Guangzhou.
