China's first digital art paper cutting museum was set up on Sept 20 in Guangzhou's Haizhu district.
The opening ceremony, which was held by Guangzhou Arts and Crafts Association, also debuted a documentary on paper cutting inheritors in Guangzhou.
The digital art paper cutting museum was created by Han Yan, a teacher from Haizhu Children's Palace and enjoys her reputation as the "paper-cutting queen in Guangzhou." Guangzhou paper cutting is an intangible cultural heritage with a history of around 500 years.
Advanced technologies such as 3D, virtual reality and augmented reality have been given full play to break the limit of time and space.
The online platform began operation on Sept 21 and is opened to the public for free. It will cast eyes on offering a place for youths to learn more about China's excellent traditional culture.
This museum is divided into five exhibition areas such as paper cutting knowledge, paper-cut characters, auspicious paper-cut works, and paper-cut zodiac signs.
