A man chooses calabash craft products at an antique market in Beijing November 25, 2013. Calabash is a vegetable which is originally harvested for food but the Chinese also use it to make items such as musical instruments and art works decorated with calligraphy and drawings. Calabash craft work which burns pictures and calligraphy on gourds is believed to have originated from the early Qing Dynasty, local media reported.
