The pyrograph stems from the Western Han Dynasty and boomed in the Eastern Han Dynasty. It was once lost due to famine and chaos caused by war in successive years. In the 1920s, the pyrograph has developed into a special handicraft industry, and pyrograph products became famous for folk art in Nanyang as a result.
