Place: Fengxiang town, Shaanxi Province, China
Clay sculpture in Fengxiang, Shaanxi has a history of more than 600 years. Some families work as workshops producing clay sculptures. Clay figures are sent to family members and friends as gifts during important festivals or events. For example, a grandmother will give clay tigers or lions to her one-year-old grandchild as birthday gifts and wish the two animals to protect the kid.
