Pic story of intangible cultural heritage inheritor for traditional lantern in Henan

Zhang Juntao poses for photos with visiting pupils at a lantern museum of Bianjing Lantern Zhang set up by himself in Kaifeng City, central China's Henan Province, Nov. 27, 2019. Zhang Juntao is a 48-year-old national-level intangible cultural heritage inheritor for the Bianjing Lantern Zhang, a brand of traditional lantern in Kaifeng of central China's Henan that can be dated back to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Since 2001, Zhang has been building a data base for the styles of traditional lanterns in China through materials searching. He set up a museum for lanterns in 2011 in Kaifeng and gives classes for schools and communities in regular basis. He hopes that the Bianjing Lantern Zhang can be known and liked by more people and the traditional culture be passed down. (Xinhua/Li Jianan)
