This unlimited edition is a reproduction of an original Zumu house, where the matriarch of a Mosuo family usually lives. Reimagined as a soft plastic prefab with a scale factor of 5:3, this smaller version of the original house is easier to transport and reassemble. China could expand its exports to include other, more interesting goods that are not materialistic, but idealistic.
