In this Wednesday, April 4, 2012 photo, snow falls on a mosaic of the late North Korean leader Kim Il Sung at a spot at the foot of Mount Paektu where he is said to have camped overnight while leading a fight against the Japanese. The story of Mount Paektu is the story of how one man managed to build an entire national culture and history around his own carefully crafted story, deliberately drawing on the methods and symbols of religion.
