A lack of respect and I cannot imagine that there is not a law against it.

Why must there be a law for - or against everything? I agree with you that these pictures show a lack of respect, but we cannot legislate morality.

And, of course, the model is female. I firmly believe the human form is beautiful, why is only the female form depicted?
Are we looking at desecration of the Forbidden City, or yet another demeaning of women?

Wouldn't this model, sitting on a relic qualify for the 'tourist behaving badly' law? She was a visitor to an historical site - a major tourist attraction, after all.

Yes you can and we do. What the Chinese do is another matter but I am sure that they must have something on the statute books to preserve us from acres of flesh being exposed in public places.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we rarely agree as to which bodies are and are not beautiful. But the last thing I need when photographing a thing of beauty is a naked woman completely out of character with the shot.
