The objects, which were based on the rooster to mark the zodiac sign of the year on the Chinese calendar, were shown at the museum of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
The crafts showcased long-standing traditions from across the country, including Beijing's cloisonne vases and miniature sculptures and zisha teapots from Yixing, eastern Jiangsu Province.
