Photographer's Note

This is not a dragon boat supposed for boat tours on the man made and hand dug lake at the Summer Palace in Beijing. The boat was built for Chinas last empress, Xi-Xi. In 1997, when I visited Beijing for the first time, tourists were allowed to go on board the marble boat. But nowadays they are not, probably because it is easier to preserve the unique boat that way.
