Paper-cut picture with silk surround

Paper-cut picture with silk surround

This framed picture was sent to me by the China Council for Promotion of International Trade and the Chamber of Commerce of Foshan city, the cradle of Ling Nan culture and where I’m from. The surrounding is silk, a local specialty; it has the status of intangible cultural heritage. The paper-cut picture shows roof eaves in the typical style in that area. This is a picture that really represents Foshan, and represents the work I do, and represents a connection between here and Foshan.
