(ECNS) -- "Datiehua", a molten iron splashing performance, was staged in Changchun, Jilin Province by a team from North China's Hebei.

A traditional folk activity, it creates a canopy of flowers by splashing molten metal into the air.

Irons must be melted in a furnace over 1,700℃ before the show, which makes it dangerous for performers.

A master of "Datiehua" said he has grown used to being burned during shows.

This activity is listed as a National Intangible Cultural Heritage.
