Big "teapot"

Big "teapot" in Guiyang miniascape garden
On February 16th, a "Zi Sha teapot" sculpture, about one meter high, was set up in the miniascape garden of Guiyang ("Zi Sha" refers to a special ceramic material). The whole pot is purple and placed on a thick base made of "ancient roots", while the mouth, cover and handle of the pot look very real. Two big characters of "delicate fragrance" are carved in the middle of the pot and a golden orchid in full bloom is painted in the lower part of the pot. "Green tea" continuously pours out from the sloping mouth of the pot, and pours into the big "cup".
Many visitors stop to admire the wonderful contraption.
