84-year-old Chinese man turns nude model
Beijing: An 84-year-old man has taken to nude modelling for art students in the Chinese city of Chengdu.
Wishing to use the pseudonym Li Jun, the octogenarian says has been modelling since April, but he wants to keep his new pastime a secret from his children.
A widower, he said that he loves being around the art students during his modelling sessions and gets relaxed by their light-hearted attitude.
Though he rarely talks with the students, he likes to have a look at their paintings, state-run Global Times reported.
He receives USD 15.81 for each sitting he does completely nude, giving him an income of about 1,000 yuan a month.
Students appreciate Li`s participation in their classes, but teachers said that because Li is advanced in age, they do not ask him to hold demanding poses.
