The attraction of the traditional Chinese folk art of papercutting may lie in its apparent simplicity: a typical papercut requires no paints or brushes, only an ordinary pair of scissors or a knife, and a single sheet of paper. As the use of paper became well established throughout China, this art form came into being and has since enjoyed more than 1,500 years of popularity. Outstanding among Chinese folk arts, papercutting's influence in other fields and the number and variety of its products reveal the depth of its roots in popular culture as a means of beautifying the everyday environment of the broad masses of the Chinese people.
