Folk artist Sheng Songbai makes writing brushes at his studio in Jingdezhen City, East China’s Jiangxi Province. Now 80 years old, Sheng still uses traditional crafts to make writing brushes through a complex process that includes selecting the right animal hair to meet diverse writing or painting requirements and fitting shafts made of local bamboo. He learned the skill from his father beginning at the age of 13. His craftsmanship is recognized by the provincial government as a cultural heritage. (Photo: China News Service/Wang Haoyang)
