Born with a deformity, Xiong's head is disproportionately large for his small 80-cm tall body, which prevents him from even standing up on his own. The unfortunate man fortunately has a mother who chose to forever shoulder him in a bamboo basket, caring for him and keeping him in touch with the world outside of their timeworn earthen house.
