Speaker looks like a rock Babaoshan Revolutionary Cemetery

Babaoshan 八宝山

Music is played throughout the day. For the most part it is light and pleasant - traditional songs, ballads and orchestral pieces. In China, great attention is paid to maintaining a natural atmosphere in gardens. These speakers are now offered in the United States, but they were developed for the domestic Chinese market. Functional items such as trash receptacles also receive similar attention. In one natural garden in Sichuan, the trash receptacles were designed to look like small wooden huts. Porcelain figures of lions and pandas are also popular. Attention to detail is one of the elements of the Chinese garden.
