Performance artist locks himself up in a wooden instrument for prisoners in the ancient times, and sticks 100-yuan notes all over his body.

Recently, on a street of Kunming City (昆明市) a man, who locked himself up in a wooden instrument for prisoners in the ancient times and stuck 100-yuan bank notes all over his body, staged stunning performance art to his audience. But he confronted the notorious officers of chengguan (City Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau, also known as City Urban Administrative Enforcement Bureau; 城市管理行政执法局 in Chinese), who are responsible for cracking down the street vendors, hawkers, and even the shoe shiners in the streets. See the pictures below.
