|Chinese Paper Cutting|
Event Type: Adult Program|
Start Time: 3:00 PM
End Time: 4:00 PM
The art of Chinese paper-cutting has a very long history. The first examples of the real and formal paper-cut were discovered in the 1960s in a roughly 1500-year-old tomb belonging to the Northern dynasty.
The paper-cutting designs often carry many layers of meaning coming from ancient and modern Chinese culture. These meanings are conveyed through homophony, that is, the sound of the Chinese word for something (for example, an animal) sounds the same or similar to another word (for example, good fortune, wealth, feeling lovesick, etc.) and also through implied meanings and symbolism.
