In the process of making the lamp, the villagers try to pull the lamp team into several sections, which means that the more broken the lamp is like the earthworm, the endless life and growth, carrying the villagers’ prayers for the evil spirits and good fortune in the coming year.As early as the Ming Dynasty, the flower lantern rose in Datian Township, but in the age of food is not enough, the once popular datian flower lantern slowly died out, the production technology is also facing extinction.Until the 1960s, a villager surnamed Yang of 塅 village group groped to make a lantern, Lantern Festival “appeared” on his door.Huang Maosheng saw it and imprinted it in his heart. Then he began to make lamps.Huang maosheng describes himself as a “fun person” who sees something and wants to learn it.He can woodwork, wood carving, mud water, etc., also can guqin love singing, is the village’s recreational activities.Since making the lanterns, he has mastered the local traditional lanterns and learned to paint and cut paper to make the lanterns more exquisite.Huang Maosheng said that the paper blade of the inner wheel depended on whether the lantern could turn or not. “For example, this lantern is simple and requires more than 10 processes.”Huang Maosheng introduced.Select 3-5 years of high-quality bamboo, and then through the process of bamboo cutting, fire baking bending, brining and other processes, the preparation of the external skeleton.The inner paper wheel is like a round lantern, with a vertical shaft in the middle and a blade above it. “The revolving lantern has no bearing and no motor, so whether it can go and how fast it can go depends on the paper blade.”After a grope, failure, now he is in his own hands, the production of beautiful and chic lanterns, in the village far and wide.Huang Maosheng originally only in the first month, whether hanging in the gate of the lantern, the Beidou lamp, or the Lantern Festival villagers make earthworm lamp, he made the lamp can always win the praise of the villagers.But after the lunar New Year, these lamps and lanterns will be put away again, stacked in a corner upstairs.A few years ago, he was rated as a non-hereditary inheritor. At the same time, combining with the most beautiful courtyard construction in the village, he sorted out the abandoned warehouse behind his house and “transformed” it into a spacious and bright backyard, which was covered with a roof and became a field lantern exhibition hall, as well as a key point of the intangible cultural heritage of Datian Township.Sometimes Huang teaches tourists or neighbors how to make field lanterns. Huang’s field lanterns finally have their own “world”.Whenever he has spare time, he picks up tools to make lanterns in the courtyard and hangs his elaborate lanterns. Passers-by and tourists often stop to admire them.Sometimes Huang teaches tourists how to make datian lanterns, hoping that more and more people will get to know this folk treasure.
