Li Yanjun, Wood Ladle Carver

          Turn the ladle over, you see a face. With a few finishing touches, the face comes to life. Beautiful or ugly, it is up to the viewers to judge. But the more you look at these faces, the more you feel touched. So lifelike, so full of personality! One ladle allows you to have a different perception of people, of life.
