I was on a crowded street in Wyoming when I saw a group of children in a line holding a knotted rope following their teacher. Traffic stopped and all eyes were on the procession, reminding me of a similar custom practiced during the Qing Dynasty. Children from different families were entrusted to an overseer while the parents were at work and would be kept in queue by holding hands and hair. The San Francisco background is inspired by street scene photographs of San Francisco’s Chinatown district during the early 1900s. - MS

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, we ask that you include your location and phone number in order to get back to you during appropriate hours so we can accomodate the needs of people different time zones. We do not share your information with anyone. If you don't hear back from us within 24 hours, please check your spam folder or feel free to call us at 440-255-1200 / 800-621-1141.
