Hello Cleo McCall!

Many thanks for your appreciation and compliments!

This sone-stele was done and finally unfinished during the Ming-Dynasty...about 15 centory! Than the emperor decided to leave the capitol Nanjing and went to Peking. Until now, all the stone-steles are laying in this position at the mountains...ready for transportatation about 30 miles to Nanjing. It's one riddle for the mankind, how they want to transport or move this totally three steles (one of them with 16000 tons weight) to far city Nanjing...nobody know it exactly!

Best friendly greetings from China-Germany, Udo
