IMPERIAL SCREEN ON DISPLAY BEFORE CHRISTIE'S AUCTION IN HONG KONG.
An imperial 12 panel soapstone-inlaid and zitan hardwood screen is
displayed at a shopping mall in Hong Kong July 3, 2003. The three metre
high screen from China's Kangxi period (1662-1722) is estimated to
fetch HK$8-10 million (US$1.02-1.28 million) at a Christie's auction on
July 7, which will shatter the world record price for Chinese furniture
at an auction. REUTERS/Bobby Yip
