If only the body-shape of both the emperor & of his admirers is not that of the Koreans/Chinese, with short legs & very flat bottoms. I suspect that the Chinese or Koreans might have carved this statute. Oh, well, begga...

Rev, Please relax. It is a harmless spoof that is doing the rounds at the moment. Here is another picture that could uplift your spirits. One of those leaders was President-c^u^m-Emperor Bokassa of central Africa. Of course, he modeled himself after Emperor Haile Selassie & Emperor Napoleon Bonapart...
