Image Quiz: Can you tell what's going on here?

Hint: This has nothing to do with a traffic jam on the PA Turnpike, after it is sold and the new owners go bankrupt.

Hints: All slides are from the same, larger canvas. This is very old.



I took these photos as we were visiting a museum.

If you can tell what's happening, leave a note in the comments area.

Yep. It is polo.

The game was played in Ancient China.

I dig seeing the one guy deplicted on the painting on the canvas as if his horse has broken through the surface of the canvas and is falling into another dimension.

Interesting humor.

Today, those in Communist China would have nothing to do with the sport of polo -- a game of 'kings.'

In the 2008 Olympics, all the horse riding events are going to be staged in Hong Kong so as to eliminated the need to bring the livestock and associated foods onto the mainland. They fear a widespread disease.
