Photographer's Note

According to the China travel website, the Seventeen-Arch Bridge was built during the reign of Emperor Qianlong (1711-1799). There are some thirty bridges in the Summer Palace and this is the largest one, with a length of 150 meters (164 yards) and a width of 8 meters (8.75 yards).
A life-size bronze ox set on a bluestone wave-lined pedestal overlooks the east shore of Kunming Lake. The ox was cast in the image of a live creature in 1755. On its back is an inscription explaining the significance of the bronze ox. The ox was placed on the bank of the lake in hopes of preventing flooding forever.
Location: Summer palace, Beijing, China.
