Money represents different values to people and some find it more valuable than others. Door number 11 illustrates in the front two people exchanging money while one guy had only one Chinese bill the American guy had much more money in his hand The characters in the front were serious and had really no facial expression. It seemed like they were making an exchanged, but an unfair one because American money is worth more than Chinese money, but yet it was the American guy who was exchanging his more valuable money for a less valuable one. On the back of the door was an old lady using that same American money and pasting it on her wall. It seemed as if she didn’t find money important or as valuable like other people do. The old lady was very intriguing because of the way she was pasting the papers on the wall like they were just sticker, probably because she had so much of it and didn’t know what else to do with it. The old lady would be described as intriguing and even selfish at the same time because if she had so much money to waste, she could’ve done something better with it. For example, give it to those who are in need. The first side of the door made you think that by the way the characters were showed that it was comparing how much more money the United States had compared to China. The back side of the door in a way supported my thought because it was the American money that the old lady was pasting on the wall. Money might be very important, but some people don’t think of it the same way. Door 11, illustrated that in a unique way and made you think about it.
