Introduction

Mrs Qingyuan He, from the province of Hunan (southern China), is a retired secondary school teacher (teaching Chinese), and is @tumutanzi's teacher.

To make life more interesting after retired from her teaching job, she stared to learn paper-cutting art, Chinese calligraphy and collect local children's songs. As suggested by @tumutanzi, she is happy to share her (newbie) paper-cutting work on Steemit.com. I hope steemians would like them. The payout upvoted from steemians will be used to publish the book of local children's songs.

Chinese paper cutting

The art of paper-cutting (jiǎnzhǐ 剪纸) in China may date back to the second century C.E., since paper was invented by Cai Lun in the Eastern Han Dynasty in China. As paper became more affordable, paper-cutting became one of the most important types of Chinese folk art. Later, this art form spread to other parts of the world, with different regions adopting their own cultural styles. Because the cut-outs are often used to decorate doors and windows, they are sometimes referred to as chuāng huā (窗花), window flowers or window paper-cuts. People glued the papercuts to the exterior of windows, so the light from the inside would shine through the negative space of the cutout. Usually, the artworks are made of red paper, as red is associated with festivities and happiness in Chinese culture, but other colours were also used. Normally paper-cutting artwork is used on festivals like Spring Festival, weddings and childbirth. Papercuts always symbolizes luck and happiness.

介绍

贺庆媛女士,湖南人, @tumutanzi 的中学语文老师。为丰富生活,她退休后学习书法、剪纸,收集整理当地童谣。受 @tumutanzi 建议,现将初学剪纸作品发布在Steemit上,希望大家喜欢,也欢迎大家指教。同时,所得点赞收入将用来出版童谣作品。

中国剪纸

剪纸是中国最古老的民间艺术之一,有学者认为剪纸的前身可追溯到汉唐妇女使用金银箔剪成方胜贴在鬓角为饰的风俗。

早期的剪纸多见于丧葬、祭祀等仪式中,大约跟道家的灵媒神务有关,例如杜甫的《彭衙行》中就有“暖汤濯我足,剪纸招我魂”的明确记载。时致今日部分地区仍有年节剪鬼神之形贴于牛栏、门楣之上的巫术习俗,西南山区的集市上多有由专门的剪纸作坊批量生产的神符备售,各家各户的灶台楼阁细处也是每年一换。

感谢贺老师愿意分享给我们你的作品。也欢迎你继续和我们分享你的作品。

我也算把Steemit玩出了花样。希望为老师早日筹到出版童谣书籍的费用。

I was an art student at University of Iowa (USA) and I always wanted to try paper-cutting but they never offered a course on it. However, I think your post may help me as a tutorial on how to get started with paper-cutting! It reminds me of silhoutte prints from printamking and also black and white photography. I cant wait to get it a try! Thanks for your helpful post. This is the kind of stuff that makes steemit awesome! Nice picture of you guys too!!

贺老师这么感性、这么文艺范的老师怎么会教出坛子这样的理科高才生。。哈哈哈,也很有趣,我要做贺老师的粉丝!

近日经您引荐,开始学习使用steemit,经常在临睡前用iphone看写的blog,发现一个问题是iphone能看到文字看不到图,不知其他人是否遇到过同样的问题。
