One Chinese man decided to surprise his girlfriend in a very unusual way. He had sent her a bouquet made of banknotes. The unnamed man from the Chinese province of Jilin has sent his girlfriend a bouquet made of banknotes of the total amount of 10,000 yuans, which is slightly more than 1,450 USD. Each banknote has been in the form of roses, and the bouquet was made by florist in Changchun.
China is the biggest toy exporter in the world - nearly 75% of all the world's toys are made in the country – but the retail price of one high-quality toy in the western market is often more than six months' salary for a Chinese toy factory worker. In order to depict the drudgery of mass toy production, photographer Michael Wolf made a large-scale installation where he attached 20,000 used plastic toys all made in China surrounding large sized photos of the workers who make them. Wolf called the project “The Real Toy Story”. The work portrays the human presence behind mass-produced goods and provides viewers with a visceral, immersive experience that evokes the sensation of density endemic to urban areas of the region.
