The Great Wall replica, Splendid China theme park.
The Great Wall replica backed by high rise condominiums of
Shenzhen's newly rich, Splendid China theme park,
Shenzhen, China.-To observe a society in a snapshot of time can create a
false impression. Erasing the past is nothing new to China. The Communist
Revolution and the nightmare of the Cultural Revolution, are two recent
examples of such iconoclastic behavior. What is different now is the scale
and concentration of the effort. It is distilled in its purity and awe
inspiring for its totality. Shenzhen encapsulates this rush in as a case
study for the pitfalls of change.
