Feng Huanjian numbers flour molds he collects in Qingdao, a coastal city of east China's Shandong Province, Aug. 13, 2010. Feng Huanjian loves collecting antique flour molds, which Chinese people used to make flour foodstuff with different figures and patterns, such as peaches and lotus standing for happiness and fertility since the late Tang Dynasty in the 9th century until the 1960's. His collection has risen beyond 7,000 molds made of wood, stone, pottery, stannum and sliver, which brought him a world record confirmed by the Shanghai Great World Guinness Book of Records.
