Song Changhong is the master of a kite-making craft which traces its roots back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279).

Instead of painting the whole paper, she always leaves a blank space at both ends of the kite wings and creates a small piece of traditional Chinese painting.

It is said that Emperor Huizong of the Song Dynasty (960-1279) created this style. After generations of preservation, this royal kite-making craft with sophisticated production procedures still attracts customers.

"I remember people lining up in front of my house just to buy a kite from my father," she said. "Now I want to introduce this craft to more art lovers and to the world."
