As I walked through the Zhongguancun Walking Street, I had to stop and take a look at Youmoyouyang. After all, it's not everyday you see a shop that sells hand models.


Inside, I found several hand models in a variety of colors displayed at the front of the shop. According to the shop assistant, this store offers two types of hand models: wax and gypsum. The wax hand model is fairly transparent, while the gypsum model is gold-colored.


If you'd like to make a model, the shop will first make a copy of your hands in the shape you want. Then they will make a model of the hands on the spot according to the customers design.


Youmoyouyang also makes gypsum caricatures. Make a pose while the artist draws your caricature. Then simply wait a few days before picking up the end product. A caricature cost RMB 400 when I visited.
