If you're interested in seeing more about the Chinese "art factory" village of Dafen, previously described and depicted here and here, it is worth checking out this site from the German photographer Michael Wolf.

The main site brings up a collection of several dozen tiny thumbnails, which can be clicked individually to view. Each is a shot of an artist with one of his or her creations -- for instance, several versions of the Mona Lisa. They are slow to load, at least for me in China, but worth the wait -- as are many of Wolf's other portfolios available on his site.

Since I can't directly include one of Wolf's professional shots, here is one more snapshot from my own visit to Dafen.The point to notice is the... breadth of the genres represented.
