There are 2 main symbols for China, the Great Wall and the Panda.
One is man-made, one is natural.
One is dead, the other has life.
The Great wall is fascinating. When I went there, I could not believe my eyes. The walls are tall and wide and stretch as far as my eyes could see.
Whoever planned this must be out of their minds.
It is wild.
It drew a line and limited the mind. Few dared to venture out.
But it offered limited protection. In history, China was constantly invaded by its northern neighbors.
It is a paradox, the unimagined great project in fact sets a limit to the imagination of future generations.
