Photo taken on Nov. 13, 2011 shows a gold copy of the pig head sculpture of Yuanmingyuan, the Old Summer Palace, at a shopping center in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province. Once housed at the Old Summer Palace, the heads of 12 bronze sculptures of Chinese zodiac animals were looted by foreign invaders in 1860 at the end of the Second Opium War (1856-1860). Some heads have been bought by patriotic Chinese and donated to the central government. (Xinhua/Shen Peng)
