Tang Qifu learned the craft from his father at 17, making new creations after inheriting traditional techniques. By selling bird cages, he was able to fund the education of his two sons in addition to building two new houses. (Photo: China News Service/He Junyi)

Like father, like son. Tang Zhizhong, 25, also took up the trade at 12. More importantly, he has made a name for himself for his skill at carving on bird cages. One of his creations won a special award in a provincial-level craft show in 2015. It sometimes takes him 17 hours to finish a carving. (Photo: China News Service/He Junyi)
