A clay craftsman named Zhang Yu showed off his sculpting process when making a statue of Lord Guan, a deity worshipped in Chinese folk religion.

The impressive video was filmed in the city of Tianjin on September 23, 2012.

Zhang, the sixth-generation of a family of clay artists, was seen shaping Lord Guan's figure out of the clay first and then painting the colours on it after it was dyed in a machine.

Zhang reportedly originated from Tianjin and he is a folk artist deeply loved by Chinese people.
