After re­tir­ing from full-time work, folk artist Zhang Ji­gao ded­i­cated him­self to cre­at­ing minia­ture ver­sions of an­cient build­ings in Xi’an, Shaanxi prov­ince. To make the repli­cas more life­like, Zhang has made sev­eral vis­its to his­tor­i­cal sites and in­ter­viewed fel­low crafts­men about build­ing ma­te­ri­als. He also uses mod­ern tech­nol­ogy to make his mod­els more ac­cu­rate. Zhang hopes that he will be able to make his repli­cas even more de­tailed with three-di­men­sional print­ing tech­nol­ogy.
