Bamboo scaffolding

Local construction workers prefer bamboo scaffolding to steel because it is five times cheaper and four times faster to raise, not to mention significantly lighter. It withstands typhoons better than steel, and moreover gives warning before failing.

Scaffolders have their very own god, different from the god of the building trade, but the same one as prayed to by Cantonese opera troupes - whose stages are made of bamboo.
