Sorry to be late in congratulating you on your 200th post and your award. I am on a business trip in Houston and have missed a few days of checking your blog.

Your photo presents quite a contrast between the modernist design and what appears to be a classical Chinese figure, although from the photo I cannot tell its age.

I was interested to look at the figure because my wife and have a collection of Chinese ceramics, particularly Han Dynasty (220 B.C. - 220 A.D.), although we have a few Neolithic Chinese pots (2500 B.C.) that are remarkable for their resemblance to Native American designs.
