Chinese Paper Cutting Art

Chinese paper cutting is a folk art with close to 2000 years of history. Below are some amazing samples of great craftsmanship; most of the graphics are symbols of luck and prosperity, animals & pets, as well as reflections of daily folk lives…

Chinese paper cutting folk art
The oldest surviving paper cut was originated from the 6th century, but it’s commonly believed that it started as a hobby among nobles in the Han Dynasty when paper was first invented in 105 AD.

The art evolved into a folk culture over the centuries as paper became more accessible; with works often used to decorate homes and for ritual purposes.

The art remains popular, particularly in the rural areas. There’s a new found interest for paper cutting in the past two decades as the Chinese began to realise how precious this cultural heritage is, and the art is gradually becoming a popular culture in China these days.
