Found an English walking tour. Today they are going to visit a museum and Tianzifang next to it.
The museum we were going to visit is Liuli Museum. Liuli is a special type of glossing on the pottery during the ancient times. They are typically used during roof tile-making. The yellow roof tiles used in the Forbidden City have gone through this process.
Some interesting sculptures were also placed in the balcony.
Second floor exhibited more intricate glass works.
About the artists, who own this private museum.
We found this neat little studio while visiting Tianzifang.

Cool shape guitars.
Owner of this temporary exhibit, Mr. Phillip Jarrell (http://www.phillipjarrell.com/), a photographer from NYC, who also has his own guitar brand and made guitars for many famous bands including Madonna’s.
As night fell, the outer set of Liuli Museum lighted up in different shades.
Luxun, one of the most famous modern writer, lived not far from my apartment. So a few days later, I made a visit to the museum dedicated to his work.
While in Japan.
A sculpture nested in a painting, giving off a 3D effect.

After he passed away, they made a mask out of his face, took out 20 mustache hairs and stuck into the mask. That was all he left of his body on this earth.
