Tiezhi (iron branch) artists make an iron bracket for the Lantern Festival parade in Shuangxi Town of Pingnan County, southeast China's Fujian Province, Feb. 19, 2019. Tiezhi parade is a time-honored folk performance in Fujian. With steel pipes or iron bars welded into the shape of branches, a bracket is set up for young artists in traditional costume to sit and perform. The art has lasted more than 300 years in Shuangxi. In 2008, it was listed in the national catalogue of intangible cultural heritage. (Xinhua/Lin Shanchuan)
