That was a great video, thanks!
When my wife and I lived in Taiwan in the late '80s there was a traditional folk art called Mian Ren 面人 which was very similar, but they made small colorful animals, mythological creatures, and cartoon characters out of colored dough on a stick. They were apparently made as children’s toys and also used as offerings in temples at one time.
Part of their entertainment value was watching the artist make them on demand, working at a small table set up in a public place like a park, a street corner, or outside of a temple.
