Though Dingtao shadow puppet play has been included on the National Intangible Cultural Heritage List, the folk art has now been losing itself in Shandong. Local people can rarely see the traditional culture show today. However, the 80-something Feng Shoukun still holds dear his beloved old art. The old man told the reporter that few people ask for shadow puppets today, and it has been difficult for him to find a successor.
