Personifications of China

OK, China Hush stole this from Lengxiaohua, and Lengxiaohua stole this from Douban, so I should have the right steal it from China Hush.

This is artwork made by Douban user "Pharaoh". It is the personification of all most of China's provinces. I have no idea how accurate these personifications are, but its neat nonetheless.
