Chinese Paper Cutting（1-4）
Chinese paper-cut, inscribed in 2009 (4.COM) on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Present throughout China and in various ethnic groups, paper-cut is a popular art integral to everyday lives. A predominantly female pursuit, it is transmitted from mother to daughter over a long period of time, beginning in childhood, and is particularly common in rural areas. It earns the most skilful artists respect and admiration. Many techniques are used: the paper can be cut or engraved with a chisel, coloured or left blank.
