Yan Fuxing, 55, is well-known in the city for his collection of musical instruments and his skill in making them.
 
"A week ago, when I was drinking chicken soup, I thought if the chicken bone can be made into a flute," said Yan.
Yan tried with a chicken thigh bone and made a flute only 2.9cm long (1.14 in).
 
"The music from it is very pleasant to the ears," said Tao Ye, a local professional musician. "It's really amazing this little flute can play music."
