Apple Celebrates New China Store with Mural and Video

Apple is only days away from opening its latest retail store in China, and to celebrate the event the company released a video showing artist Wang Dongling creating a mural that's currently covering the location. The mural is a poem about West Lake in Hangzhou where the new store is located.

Wang Dongling is known for his abstract calligraphy, which makes his Apple Store mural especially unique. Business Insider said the poem was written by Su Shi who died in 1101. Translated into english it reads,

The light of water sparkles on a sunny day,
and misty mountains lend excitement to the rain.
I like to compare the west lake to "Miss West."
Pretty in a gay dress, and pretty in simple again.

Apple plans to open the new store on Saturday, January 24.
