City of fakes

When the chinese do something they do it thoroughly. In that spirit  Dafen Oil Painting Village  in Buji, Longgang, Shenzhen had devoted all business in the village to creating real fake oil paintings.

 In the eighties most people I know had Monets water lillies on their walls as replica posters. But now you can have a real hand painted fake on your wall. Organised legal fakes….pretty funny.
