Papercutting

Papercutting is a long-standing, widely-spread folk art in China. It calls for a pair of scissors to cut color papers into various designs. On the
occasion of the Spring Festival, wedding, and other happy events, people prefer to paste beautiful, bright-colored papercuts on the white window
paper or window glass as well as on the walls, doors, and lanterns to heighten the joyous atmosphere. Papercutting is rich in content and
conveys a profoundly implied meaning. It touches on such subjects as flowers, birds, fish, insects, animals, legendary heroes, characters in
operas, bamboo, fruits, vegetables, and which the people place their hope and pursuit are important content. With a strong Chinese national
feature, papercutting is a concentration as well as an exaggeration of the traditional Chinese fine arts.
