ALXA, May 30 (Xinhua) -- Taogerile, 77, is the leading inheritor of horse hair-embroidered Thangka in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

Taogerile inherited the workmanship from her grandpa and her mother. Worried about the dying culture, Taogerile has been devoted to the inheritance of the traditional artistry.

The complicated embroidery-making was designated as a poverty-alleviation program in Alxa Left Banner. So far, this workmanship has directly helped more than 400 people increase income and embrace a better life.
