    Barahona fishermen find a statue of Princess Jade China

    El Nuevo Diario, city BARAHONA Fishermen found a statue of Asian origin which presumably is one of 12 statues of Princess Jade of China, disappeared in the wake of the tsunami that struck the nation in 2008-2009.

    The statue was found in coastal areas of Barahona, in a place called the little beach, near the pier of the city and reportedly, offered to buy Chinese visitors to the tune of one million pesos.

    Fishermen who asked their names omitted for security reasons said they were fishing at sea shore when they saw the strange figure that turns lights on when the nights and decided to take it.

    This relic representing Chinese culture is carved in wood and with many stones is presumed diamond and most amazement as the Chinese who visited the statue is made of the same size jade, Princess China.

    Sources said the Chinese offered a million dollars for the statue, seeing paid him reverence with their traditional greeting of respect to the image, the same ended with two tears on his face.

    Asian expressed that architecture was lost when the earthquake in China.

    One would think that such an item would end up swirling around in the Great Central Pacific Garbage Patch.

    I thing the route around Africa would be more likely than the Panama Canal or Cape Horn.

    Even more likely would be it fell off someone's yacht who picked it up earlier.
