Adjust font size:

Guo Huaishen, a veteran wood sculptor from a small village of Fengtai Town, Ninghe county in north China's Tianjin municipality, is seen attentively carving a wooden horse on March 23, 2008. The craftsmanship handed down from generations in Guo's family has turned into a thriving wood carving industry that helped to enrich the village. At present, there are some 50 people dedicated to this industry in the village. Over 5,000 pieces of works are sold to Beijing and other big cities in Guangdong and Fujian provinces annually.
