Artisit Joseph Barbaccia touches up his "Prince Panda" sculpture


Panda is dressed in a costume/robe from China's Quing dynasty of the late 1700s. Depicted on the robe is a fierce-looking dragon which symbolizes the Chinese emperor. Also depicted are the twelve imperial symbols that represent the Temples of the Moon, Sun, Earth, and Heaven, imperial power of divine punishment, imperial judgement, animate nature, and the five elements of nature.
