The stall was the only one at the flower fair that introduced an intangible cultural heritage — the fish skin relief painting by Shenzhen Greater Love Arts Co. Ltd., which was founded by Ning Lei, an entrepreneur with hearing disability.
The fish skin relief painting has been listed into the eighth batch of intangible cultural heritage by the Futian District Government.
“I hope more residents will learn about the fish skin relief painting through the fair,” Ning said while being interviewed by Shenzhen Daily.
