Christie's - A Robber's Accomplice

Christie's just auctioned off the bronze rat's head and the bronze rabbit's head in its latest auction in Paris. They are two of the 12 Chinese zodiac scupltures that once graced the Imperial Summer Palace in Beijing.

This serves as a reminder to the Chinese that if you are not strong enough to defend your own home, robbers will just come in and take whatever they want, and ask you for a ransom to get your OWN stuff back!

I don't really care about the two bronze heads. Wherever they are, not my business, but the Chinese shall forever remember the shame of being defeated by the British and French troops in 1860. More importantly, we must learn the lesson & get strong; otherwise, the robbers will just come in again to loot another national treasure!
