I’m hoping some of you can help me out here. I saw this thing on the streets of Beijing, lying on top of a table full of inexpensive jewelry and other trinkets. The vendors did not speak English and I do not speak Chinese, so I could not ask them to explain why anyone would buy what looks like a bear claw. (I’m not even sure that’s what it is.)
Do any of you know what this is and why someone would buy it? I’m hoping to be enlightened!
