The Chinese hawk little glass globes that have been painted on the inside. Many of them are kind of attractive, at least to the extent that any $15 widely-produced souvenir can be. This design, however, gives me the creeps:
Click on it and examine it closely if you cannot already see that it is the World Trade Center in flames.
The good news is that I only saw one of this design, so they obviously aren't big sellers. The bad news is that today's Chinese never make anything for which they do not perceive a ready market.
