According to historical documents, when the Southern Song government lifted curfews, nightlife began flourishing again and created a demand of lanterns. Meanwhile, ample local supplies of bamboo provided natives with the material for making lanterns.
It takes modern-day lantern maker 30 minutes to make one. First, he weaves the frame from bamboo strips, creating a structure that resembles a bird cage; next, he sticks the paper to the frame with a mixture of water and starch; finally, he paints patterns on the paper and coats the lantern with transparent lacquer.
