Paper-cuttings are very popular across China, but in Guangdong, (Foshan and Chaoshan in particular) paper cuttings are among the best-known and archetypal. They both have similar content, stylings, stories and evoke similar feelings. This exhibition showcases some of the finest works to have been collected by the Guangdong Folk Arts Museum from the Foshan and Chaoshan regions. The exhibits present a dazzling display of paper cutting skills.
