When Li Deyu of the Tang dynasty (A.D. 618-907) was the Regional Supervisor of west Zhejiang IWC Replica Watches province, the abbot of the Sweet Dew Monastery lodged a complaint against his predecessor, saying that a certain amount of gold was embezzled when he handed over the valuables and property of the monastery. The new abbot produced records and documents used by former abbots when they transferred duties as proof of his accusation. However the rest of the monks charged that the new abbot had taken the gold himself and spent it. After cross-examination, the plaintiff admitted his guilt and the case was closed but the whereabouts of the gold was still not known. Some said that the culprit had broken the rules of his order and used it for his own enjoyment. The new abbot could say nothing in his own defense and resigned himself to die.

On reviewing the cases, Li suspected that not all the facts of the matter were known. He questioned the accused who confessed the whole truth.
"Everybody in the monastery wants to be in charge of things. Actually in the past years the different abbots just handed over empty records. There was in fact no gold. The other monks are against me because I alone would not condone their questionable practices, and they are using this opportunity to get rid of me."

At this point he broke down, overcome by the injustices he suffered.
Li took pity on him. "It would not be difficult to get to the bottom of this matter." He thought for a moment. "I've got it!"

He gave orders for several sedan chairs to be prepared and summoned the monks involved to come to the tribunal to give testimony, specifying that they must come in the sedan chairs. These Chopard

were placed with the doors facing a wall of the tribunal and the monks were not allowed to see one another. An amount of yellow clay was given to each and they were ordered to make a model of the gold ingots they received from their predecessors and which they handed over to their successors. These models would serve as evidence. Since they had no idea what the gold ingots looked like, their models were in different shapes and sizes. Li was furious and put them under cross-examination. The former abbots all confessed their guilt and the man they wanted to get rid of was completely exonerated.
