At the Say Tian Hng Buddha Shop in Singapore, a family has been making Taoist effigies by hand for over 100 years. These creations are hand-carved painted statues of the various gods that Taoists worship. The Ng family is the last of their kind in Singapore keeping this tradition alive through a combination of public workshops and tours.
