Xi'an China: The Bell Tower II

The Bell tower, the views from the top over the city were nice. The details in the eaves, doors, and floors were interesting. The best part though was the musical performance before we left. The music of Xian is considered to be "fossil" music. The instruments and playing style hasn't changed much since before the Tang dynasty. It has to be seen to be understood I guess.

  1. Hi Phil! THANK YOU SO MUCH for these - they are all interesting/beautiful, but the _PKE8338, Doors With Stories, and the Fossil Instruments were equisite.
    I'm very glad you went to China and lent your artist's eye to these subjects and ESPECIALLY grateful that you've chosen to share them with us.
    Thank you.
