And the work named the Four Brothers, which took Li 45 days to complete, was popular with the local people.

The production process of the doll is complicated. Not only has the process of refining clay, sculpting body, putting on makeup, clothing production, dressing, etc., but it also incorporates the ancient Chinese painting and calligraphy art, including sculpturing, painting, cutting, wearing, wadding with cotton, pasting and other processes, thus it has a high value of art appreciation.
