Artist's Description

This blind man was spotted just outside of the Forbidden City in Beijing, China. Since he was blind, he tied a rope to his money can so he knew if someone was trying to steal it.. The instrument he’s tuning is unknown to me because it has three strings, whereas most Chinese violins are from the two-string “Huqin” family. I can attest that he played it very well, though!
