From the upper terrace of the Supreme Harmony Hall, we can fell that we dominate the whole Imperial Palace with a field of roofs surrounding us. But when I saw this worker, an other image of domination came to my mind… Back in the Ming Dynasty, more than 70 000 eunucs where populated the Forbidden City. Some of them some time were having more power in hand that what could have a Prime Minister… Power, domination, 2 concepts very closed to each others if we take time to think about it.
This is China.
