Chinese Seal

Visitors to China may be amazed at the number of souvenir shops where the service of "Seal-Engraving" is readily available. Very often, the engraver claims that a seal would be finished in 15 minutes - less than the time the visitors usually stay in a souvenir shop. Many foreign businessmen who are so used to signing their names in a contract find with astonishment that their Chinese counterparts prefer to use seals. To the Chinese, a seal was for many centuries a symbol of power. The emperor's seal was called Xi, and it gave authority to all his inferiors, and governments at different levels all issued orders endorsed with official seals. In other words, the seals stood for different levels of government and their corresponding powers.
