Photo taken on Feb. 23, 2012 shows a woman of the Zhuang ethnic group weaving at a hand loom in Baying Village, Bachou Township, Donglan County of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. With the development of modern industries, the age-old hand spinning and weaving techniques in Guangxi are facing the threat of disappearing, as nowadays most people do not wear homemade clothing any more.
