The art of paper cutting is one of the oldest Chinese folk arts. It is a kind of openwork art. Usually, the artworks are associated with daily life and festivities, and animals, plants or scenes would also be used as different metaphors such as presenting lotus and carp together to symbolise continuous years of surpluses.
