Introduction: Chaoyang Paper Cutting was introduced by migrants travelling from central China towards the south during the Eastern Jin Dynasty (317-420), and developed under the influence from local customs. Now, the rustic and exuberant Yingge Dance, the melodic Ditao Music, and the exquisite paper-cutting are billed as three treasures of Chaoyang folk arts. Meanwhile, it was selected in the first batch of National Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2006, and in the UNESCO Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2009. Chinese paper-cuts are considered to be an expression of good wishes and hopes. Paper-cuts conveyed the wishes for wealth, health and longevity and so a better quality of life. With animals, flowers, figures, landscape as its major themes, the paper-cuts are more often seen during traditional Chinese festival, particular in the Spring Festival and the Lantern Festival, as well as in Chinese weddings.
