Hussein Sayyid's daughter checks a newly made lantern at her father's workshop in Cairo, Egypt, on May 20, 2017. Located inside an old building in a street full of workshops in Al-Qalaa, which means "the Citadel" in Arabic, referring to Cairo's Saladin Citadel, Sayyid's workshop produces colorful handmade glass and metal lanterns of different sizes, known in Arabic as "fanoos," displayed on stands outside the workshop. Traditional handmade lanterns usually serve as decorations in Egypt during the annual month of Ramadan. (Xinhua/Zhao Dingzhe)
