Paper Cutting

As a farewell gift from the University departing teachers were given a framed papercut piece of one of the many bridges in Shaoxing. I haven't been able to work out which bridge this one is, but it will none the less be a treasure of mine.

Papercutting is an ancient art, and it is incredible the detail that appears in this one piece of paper, cleverly cut to reveal an extra ordinary scene or picture.

I have several pieces for my collection, but this one will forever remind me of my tour of duty at Yuexiu.
