Are you a person that enjoys the words and promotional material of Mao Zedong (毛泽东; Máozédōng)?  Do you wish that there was a mulit-story museum to which you can see this collection in one place?  Well, you are in luck!

Xi'an resident Zhang Deben (张德本; pinyin Zhāng Déběn) has amassed over 3 million RMB worth of Mao Zedong memorabilia over 34 years of collecting.  Zhang’s collection includes over 300,000 Mao badges, 5,000 portraits, 1,500 paper clippings, and 3,000 bronze and porcelain figurines.  His collection even includes a miniture of Tian'anmen Square (天安门广场; Tiān'ānmén guǎngchǎng). 

Now that’s complete!  But how will he ever be able to put it all on eBay?
