A personal passion: The first glimpse inside (Part 2)

My love for harmonious display. The Aubusson carpet is Baron's favourite. Can anyone spot him in this picture?  

Beyond the main door, Chinese arts hung on the walls with architectural precision greet the visitors. A huge curio cabinet made of yellow rosewood with the carvings of a pair of Qilin faces the entrance. On the side, figurines of horses collected from all over the world gallops in with the flow and above them, a cuckoo clock, air flown back from Germany announces the time of the day. 

A 17th century Ming Dynasty painting: "Tribute to the Emperor in the Pine Garden" 

An ode to the Battle of Red Cliff by Su Dongbo, my favourite poem.

Scenes of old Beijing.
