The Fish Basin

When you think of a merchandise shop, you rarely think art gallery at the same time. But China's store features trinkets for sale as well as beautiful pieces that are there simply to view. The latter includes the fish basin, located at the doors on the far end of the shop (nearest the outdoor market area). The basin is lovely just to look at, but a framed sign on the wall reveals historic information and invites the guest to actually interact with the piece.
