    ... of Special Scenic Beauty". The next stop was at a shop where gold leaf decorated objects are produced. Gold is pounded and rolled until it is whisper thin. It is amazing to watch the artisan pick up this film, much thinner than a hair, (1/10,000 of a millimeter) with a chopstick and deftly place it on the block where she wishes to shape it.
