The Rematch: Duke Riley recreating history in China

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 23, 2012
A history lesson from Brooklyn's Duke Riley: Thousands of years ago, the Jade Emperor decided to assign an animal’s name to every year, in order to simplify the calendar for the people of China.

And now, Duke is going to recreate this race.
