A crash course in changing the world.

ACT8 - Chinese paper cuts

The Spring Festival is the most important festival in China. People usually decorate the doors and windows with red papercuts, because red means good luck.

There are still many old people mastering the precious technique, but young people usually like to follow the western living style and don't have interest in traditional things. So traditional handmade paper cuts are just fading away.

Of course we can survive without those things in the future. But it would be a shame to loose such a technique with over 1400 years history. In my opinion its very important to keep those traditions alive, so people over the world can identify themself with their people and country.

Yes you're right. It would be a shame to lose artistic skills like that. It's sad that art nowadays are simple and isn't even pretty most of the time...
