Photo taken on May 8, 2019 shows Wang Junzi, the inheritor of Ru porcelain making, watching a traditionally-shaped Ru porcelain of Song Dynasty at a Ru porcelain museum in Baofeng County, central China's Henan Province. The Ru porcelain is famous for its azure color, light body, filmy grain and gentle textile. The making techinique of Ru porcelain was lost during the war era at the end of Northern Song Dynasty. With the great endeavor and efforts made by the craftsmen, the making technique of Ru porcelain has been restored over the past decades and in 2011 the making of Ru porcelain was listed in the third group of National Intangible Cultural Heritages.
