History of paper-cut
Paper-cut is a traditional Chinese folk art with a long history. To make an animated, lifelike paper-cut you only need a pair of scissors, several pieces of colorful papers, and, most importantly, a pair of deft hands.
The origin of paper-cut dates back to the remote past in Chinese history. Historical records show that paper-cut emerged in the Han Dynasty. There had been paper-cutting industry in Ming and Qing dynasties and the products were sold home and abroad at that time.
Paper-cut is very popular among the Chinese people, who like to use paper-cuts to decorate their rooms and add more festivity to the special day such as weddings, birthday, etc.
Paper-cut appeals greatly to the Chinese people because of its distinctive features. The subject of the paper-cut is usually based on real life, for example, about historical people, animals, plants, flowers, and folk tales. Patterns of these paper-cuts are simple and clear, yet elegant and expressive with vibrant colors. The meaning of the content is revealed by way of homophony and symbolization. For example, ?Prosperity Brought by the Dragon and the Phoenix symbolizes a happy marriage, The Persimmon and Ruyi betokens good luck and happiness, and Magpie on the Tree indicates a person or a family will be blessed. All these show peoples expectations for a happy life.
As an outstanding folk art, paper-cut was selected into the intangible cultural heritage list by the UNESCO in 2006. The Chinese government has also designated successors to preserve and carry forward this traditional art.
