Art galleries in Xiamen are quite different than the ones in the USA. This is a comical picture showing the contrast of the beauty of the paintings with the reality of living with the UNDERWEAR hanging in the upstairs window which is probably the home to the gallery owner. There are hundreds of talented oil painters in Xiamen that have formed OIL PAINTING DISTRICTS with simple galleries like this one, one after another. The prices are VERY affordable and are often sold for wholesale in other countries.
