In the Shui Autonomous county of southeast of Guizhou province, local artists are putting the final touches on their latest craftswork.

The pony tail embroidery means to mark the upcoming National Congress of The Communist Party of China - held every 5 years. They have used 180 types of thread, and three thousand pony tail tufts in the craft. It takes 55 days to finish the embroidery. The characters are unique to the Shui people, and express good wishes for the congress.
