Danyang's wood carving faces extinction

Yin Rongfa, the 79-year-old craftsman, is the last inheritor of wood pattern carving in Danyang in East China's Jiangsu province. In the past, wood patterns were used to create articles of tribute used in worshiping the ancestors in the village. Yin said as the craft is not financially lucrative and young people do not want to learn it. With Yin already reaching 80, the craftsmanship of Danyang wood pattern carving is on the verge of becoming a lost art in the country. [Photo by Feng Jiangjiang/Asianewsphoto]
