He, 85 years old, is an inheritor of national intangible cultural heritage of Nvshu. Three years ago, she suffered from cerebral infarction which caused paralysis of the lower half of her body. However, she has insisted in promoting Nvshu culture voluntarily and chanting Nvshu songs for years. As of now, she has taught more than 2,300 Nushu amateurs. (Photo/Chen Jianlin)
