    You Maybe Have Never Seen -Wonderful Chinese Handmade Folk Art!

    Paper-cut is one of China's most popular and characteristic folk arts. It takes paper as the material and scissor or engraving knife as the tool. The tradition can be traced back to the 6th century. However, it probably emerged even a few centuries earlier. In Chinese culture paper-cuts symbolize the idea of blessedness, luck and fortune. Most Chinese families use them as window decorations and patterns, and for religious and decoration purposes.

    As a form of folk art, it occupies a significant position in the folk activities. Since the time as early as the Southern Song dynasty, professional paper-cutting craftsmen have emerged. Today, in the countryside, usually only women and girls make paper-cuts. It used to be even one of the craftsmanship that every girl was to master and that were often used to judge brides.

    I found some wonderful paper cuts of ancient Chinese patterns.

    Because he "found" them on his site that he wants you to go to.
    In other words,

    CLOSED, rather than deleted, 'cause Chinese paper cuts are neat.
