This is part of a set of hand-numbered and signed skateboard decks by Chinese artist and dissident, Ai Weiwei. These carry recognisable images from his oeuvre, including porcelain crabs and sesame seeds, accompanied by one of Ai’s aphorisms, such as “The World is not changing if you don’t shoulder the burden of responsibility” and “There are no outdoor sports as graceful as throwing stones at a dictatorship in the world.”
