Randall van der Woning | houseboat | guilin, people's republic of china
this mirror was at the stern of a houseboat used to take tour groups to see fishermen that use cormorants to help them fish.

the birds are leashed around the throat so they can't swallow what they catch, and they are trained to bring back the fish to the fisherman. after a few dives, the fisherman removes the leash and lets them eat a couple fish as a reward.
