a taste of China

Sorry for my lack of postings recently - I've been busy with study tours over the past month. The last group of students we had were from Xian province in China. The following paper cut is just one of many I received at the end of the tour. I was totally blown away by the detail in some of the paper cuts, apparently they are all cut by hand using scissors. The paper is so thin and delicate - they are just exquisite. They are often pasted onto windows or lanterns in China during celebrations to express joy!

I am in the process of catching up on my emails and orders. All outstanding orders will be in the post by Friday (22nd August).
