Paper-cut is a folk art that hands down from the ancient town of Phoenix and long be loved by people due to its available material, benefit price and beautiful outlook. It's very suitable for women of Miao nationality to kill their spare time. Perhaps it is unknown to many people that the paper-cut is also the base model of embroidery of Miao nationality. However, we can safely call paper-cut itself a complete handwork from the perspective of manufacture procedure and its value.
Most of the paper-cuts are impromptu works in shape of flower, bird, insect, fish, dragon, phoenix or unicorn, reflecting the nature worship and totemism of Miao nationality. Those impromptu works are characterized with vivid pictures and natural lines, possessing high art taste. What's more, people of Miao nationality created paper-cut to satisfy their spiritual needs, thus unbound to traditional values and with distinct art features, paper-cut exists in the fertile soil of the natives' life and plays the role of revealing their fundamental aesthetic conception and spiritual quality.
Paper-cut is as well an important folk-custom activity at Phoenix city. Nowadays paper-cuts mainly apply to window, wall, door and lantern. On every occasion of festival or wedding, paper-cuts are adopted by people to set the happy atmosphere off to advantage. Maybe now it is hard for tourists to see it at Phoenix city, but it’s not the same case in Miao village because many women inside the village are good at it. People of Miao nationality are very hospitable and you may ask them for several paper-cut as a souvenir next time when you visit.
