A rather scary-looking and weird, sinic depiction of the Virgin Mary (looking over her blond, blue-eyed child).
She looks like Jet Li from one of his earlier Chinese movies (like 方世玉 Legend/Fong Sai Yuk or 黄飞鸿 Once Upon a Time in China) disguising himself as one of the nuns in the late Mother Teresa’s order.

Nothing shouts “MODERNITY” better than flashing neon signs… and lots of them.

An odd-looking man who is either a representation of Joseph or one of the Wise Men from a Christmas Diorama in China.
Kind of reminds me of Mossman from He-man.

A little church erected outside the Pacific Shopping Centre in Beijing. Had some attractive imagery painted onto it as well.

A picture of a diarama outside the 太平洋百货 in Beijing. It’s actually really quite beautiful and it’s nice to see the festive effort.

Yes. A McDonalds clothing brand. As though there wasn’t enough obesity.

Coon Cheese. Tastes like racism.

Self-referencing humour? Who the hell knows. Never seen adult diapers in a supermarket before though.

Huge, misshapen tree outside one of Beijing’s Malls. To put things in perspective: I’m about 6’4”

What the hell? I ran into this in the 太平洋百货 (Pacific Shopping Centre) Sports Dept. Just looked like one of those crazy screamers you see in American Spring Break videos. Never seen a mannequin like it.
