Photographer's Note

The lion guards the Emperor's palace at the Forbidden City. The building has yellow roofs which indicates that it was for the use for the emperor as yellow was the color reserved for him. He needed many yellow roofed buildings in order to host his wife, fourteen official concubines and the more than three thousand other ladies reserved for him alone.
