Chinese lanterns are undoubtedly some most unique and recognizable features which catch the eye when travelling around old villages in China. Their manufacturing is an art form, one which is rapidly disappearing in modern times. Protecting this patrimony is now essential and the forerunner in this effort is Luo Zhaoliang, a 72 years-old craftsman recognised by the local government for his efforts in preserving and transmitting his skills and knowledge.

Master Luo lives and works in Baiyun district and he holds the record for the largest and smallest lanterns in China, from as tiny as 10 centimeters to as huge as 3 meters in diameter.
