A farmer from a rural area in the Ningxia Hui autonomous region has made more than 40 paintings depicting games or activities his generation did during childhood.

Ma Chenggong, a peasant from Qianliu village, Longde county remembered many games he used to play when he was a child, including climbing trees to pick fruit, riding horses and folding paper airlines.

Starting last year, Ma and his friend described the games with words first, then depicted them in paintings.
