It's in Cantonese bu has some great footage of old lions and an old lion factory in Fat Sun.

Corey, did you hear of these guys in your travels? They say they are the best but everyone says that.

Enjoy

The Lai family of lion makers was mentioned in Dr. Huís book. I did not pay a visit when I was in Fut San, but itís easy to see different levels of quality in the lions in the same factory. Some are made to sell for a cheap price. Others appears to have a little more work put into them. What happened to them during/after the war was a shame, but good for them for keeping their family tradition alive.
