Li Haifeng, a craftsman from Nantong, East China's Jiangsu province, recently created two paper cuttings to pay tribute to medical staff who are fighting the novel coronavirus pneumonia (NCP).
Both works are 26 centimeters in diameter and feature scenes such as people donating medical supplies and medical workers encouraging each other.
Some tips to prevent the spread of NCP, including wearing face masks, washing hands, and avoiding going out or gathering with others, are also depicted.
"It took me six days to finish the paper-cuttings. Every day I worked until midnight," said Li.
"I just want to honor their contribution and express my confidence that we can win this battle," he added.
The 34-year-old man was born into a family famous for their paper-cuttings and is now committed to the creation and innovation of the art.
