An exhibition featuring over 100 exquisite Suzhou fans is being held at Nantong Museum in East China's Jiangsu province starting May 18, 2020. [Photos/sipaphoto.com]

Known as a cradle of literary figures and men of letters, East China's Suzhou province has unsurprisingly become a hotbed for the production of exquisite fans. The fans are divided into three basic categories — moon-shaped fans made of silk, folding fans made of sandalwood and others attached with a paper cover.


As the name indicates, moon-shaped fans are round, with a silk cover and frames made from bamboo or wood. In ancient times, they were considered a token of elegance and refinement in a lady's wardrobe.

From May 18, a special exhibition runs at the birthplace of moon-shaped fans. At the Nantong Museum, visitors can appreciate the craftsmanship of over 100 Suzhou fans.

Employees work at a poverty alleviation workshop in Huanjiang Maonan Autonomous County, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, May 14, 2020. The Maonan ethnic group is one of the country's 28 ethnic groups with a smaller population. About 70 percent of Maonan people, or 64,500, live in Huanjiang County. The poverty headcount ratio in Huanjiang dropped to 1.48 percent by the end of last year. The county was removed from the country's list of impoverished counties this month. Based on the Maonan people's poverty alleviation situation across the country, the ethnic group has gotten rid of poverty as a whole. (Xinhua/Lu Boan)
