The Great Helmsman

By GDobson
People's Liberation Army guard keeping an eye on the Gate Of Heavenly Peace, the entrance to the Forbidden City on the north side of Tiananmen Square, Beijing. The picture of Mao 'The Great Helmsman' is the largest portrait in the world, and gets taken down for a touch up and a clean once a year. Taken last august at about 8am. Found myself the subject of a few chinese snappers, too!
