Lu Jinxi, a jian ware porcelain craftsman, works on a porcelain bowl in a workshop in Jianyang District of Nanping City, southeast China's Fujian Province, July 25, 2017. The jian ware porcelain, flourished in Song Dynasty (960-1279), famous for its golden black glaze with streaks of "hare's fur", is revived in recent decades after 600 years of disappearance of the knowhow of its manufacture. Lu Jinxi, 45, is one of the first craftsmen who rediscovered the long-lost art of the making of the heritage crafts. (Xinhua/Song Weiwei)
