A 54-year-old experienced craftsman managed to replicate the exquisite crown of a queen who wore the original 1,400 years ago. The replica attracted many fans recently.

Earlier this year, Li Xin, a master of making ancient crowns, received the order to replicate the crown of the queen whose husband was the last emperor of the Sui Dynasty (581-618). The crown became a headache for her, as she didn't have complete data.

So she conducted extensive research on her own using pictures, records and even documentary videos related to the crown.
