Dongba Hieroglyphics chart

Dongba, according to all of the tourist literature, is the only living hieroglyphic writing system living. It was invented by the priests of the local people, the Naxi (say "noshee" 纳西) people. It seems like noone can really read it because it's so hard, but it has been plastered all over, as part of the government's attempt to increase the city's charm.
