Forestry industry in Changbai

  • Description

    This drawing was completed on the same Changbai visit as depicted in LI2007.19 though the subject compares more with Xu Bing’s depiction of the railway industry at Fengtai [LI2007.17]. Unusually, several figures are included. The date and signature were added later.
