In this image from Xidi, Anhui, China, a doorway beckons with its inscriptions and a red icon overhead. The textures speak of antiquity, as the wall bears the marks of time. Layers of worn whitewash and a faded yellow mural together reveal the passage of years. It's a glimpse into the history of Xidi, where every element of this portal carries a story of generations past. Photo © copyright by Rich Voninski.
