From Bruce Sterling:
"Holy macaroni. Why is the official news agency of the People's Republic of China posting a whole bunch of nude body-painting? Have they lost all their little gray Mao suits over at Xinhua? What gives? A couple of these pics are Veruschka Lehndorff art-shots from the mid-1980s. Some official Chinese web-guy has been collecting these things. What could this be about?"
Gee, I don't know. The site is here. Delightful stuff. Isn't that a christmas ornament there? Or chocolate and strawberries?

thank you for posting the link. The woman who blends into the wall and the woman in the forest are incredible pieces of art.

at a brick wall the same way again:^) These pics should be distributed behind the islamic iron curtain, to reeducate those champions of the bhurka on just what they are missing. Yeehaw.

Hahah, yes, you're right, I didn't check out the rest of the site. Actually rather interesting news and features, from a different angle than most of us normally read.

Don't get your panties in a Singapore sling Jumadi. I've always spoken my mind and don't intend to change that for some anonymous guy in Singapore. Sorry about your mom.
