Photographer's Note

In the foreground a statue portrays an old man and a young girl playing Xiangqi. In the background, a group of men gather around to watch 2 people playing the same game.
Xiangqi, also known as Chinese Chess or Elephant Chess, is considered the most popular board game in the world. It is over 2,000 years old. Everywhere I traveled in China I saw people, mainly men, playing this game in public - usually with a crowd gathered around to watch. This photo was taken in a Beijing park.
