An exhibition opened at the Overseas Chinese History M幸运pk10最新网站 useum of China on Wednesday (Jan 16) to welcome the upcoming Spring Festival through the comparative display of intangible cultural heritage from Northern and Southern China.
The exhibition juxtaposes dozens of folk art pieces from Beijing and Quanzhou, Fujian province, to showcase their most representative intangible cultural heritage and promote communication between the artisans.
The displays from Beijing include paper-cutting, traditional kites, shadow play, and snuff box painting, among others, alongside their counterparts from Quanzhou, such as lanterns and puppet shows.
Quanzhou was one of key starting points of the Maritime Silk Road in ancient times and the origin of many overseas Chinese. Consequently, its folk art has also been widely spread to the rest of world. The exhibition will run until Mar 10.
