Muli umbrellas

muli int9, originally uploaded by jiulong.

"Long cylindrical umbrellas of blue, yellow and purple silk hung from the ceiling, while against the whole length of the posterior wall was stretched an enormous painting of Buddhist scenes."

"This sanctuary was the only place where we were asked not to take any pictures ..."
