Chinese Folk Arts BAR072


The creators of Chinese folk art are mostly women and they come from the working class of China's rural areas. The presence of Chinese folk art is evident in everyday food, clothing, shelter, transportation, traditional festivals, ceremonies and rituals, and in beliefs and taboos. As a living example of cultural heritage, it shows the continuity of Chinese culture from primitive society to present. With this heritage, Chinese culture boasts the longest history and the richest historical sources, and of all cultures, considers itself the most widely shared and the most geographically distinct. Its cultural implication and art form accumulates an historical culture of 7,000-8,000 years dating back to primitive society.
