Herei:disciple by tooaya Herei:disciple by tooaya
For SDL's Next Top Model, round 1, Theme School.

For people in ancient China, there's not a set school system. boys can go to private tutors to learn how to read and write, then they read and write more stuff on themselves to improve. Eventually they'd try out for the national exam, and if they are really good, they can be employed by the emperor and thus become rich and powerful.

Herei is depicted here as one such disciple (or a tutor), reading for...whatever reason. >w> The text in the background is taken from a series of ancient texts from KongZi, which teaches the morals and principles of life in general. It's one of the basic text for his followers, and a lot of the principles are still valued in China today.

Hoooo, I'm on a Herei frenzy today. XD

I dunno if it's all true, since I never really did any research. x3; It's what I get watching all those Chinese TV shows and reading novels.
