Wu Jianfu is making various dough oxen to celebrate the upcoming Spring Festival. 

As the Spring Festival approaches, the Year of the Ox is celebrated in Paifang Township, Feidong County, Anhui Province, with all kinds of exquisite and vivid cartoon oxen made by Wu Jianfu, an inheritor of the local intangible cultural heritage "Wulang dough modeling".

Born in the 1980s, Wu is a fervent enthusiast of Chinese dough modeling who devotes himself to combining this traditional art with contemporary trends. His works are popular among teenagers as he is adept at making dough sculptures of characters in comics and animations.

Chinese dough modeling is a folk art which originates in the Han dynasty (202 BC – 220 AD). It mainly uses flour or glutinous rice flour as raw material to make vivid figurines through kneading, rolling, rubbing, engraving, and cutting.
