Chinese Folk Arts, Paperback / softback Book

Chinese Folk Arts Paperback / softback

Part of the Introductions to Chinese Culture series


Chinese folk arts originate in the rural areas of China's vast territory.

As forms of communal art, folk arts are evident in everyday food, clothing and shelter, in traditional festivals, ceremonies and rituals, and in beliefs and taboos.

As a living example of cultural heritage, folk art demonstrates the continuity of Chinese culture from ancient to modern times, a culture with distinctive national and regional characteristics and a history of some 8,000 years.

Chinese Folk Arts provides an illustrated introduction to the history and development of this colourful part of China's unique artistic culture.
