China - The Nine, Dragon Wall


Haomin from Beijing, China sent me this interesting card and did a great job explaining in writing the meaning of the wall. The wall is sculpted in 7 colors of glazed tile.  Screen walls were common in traditional architecture for giving privacy to an entrance as well as serving a symbol of rank. The number 9 and the dragon are both symbolic in Chinese culture.  
I love the scenic stamps too. :) Thanks again!
