Papercuts and Mianhua
In Shanxi and Shaanxi provinces, almost every home is decorated with papercuts on the windows and doors.

Papercuts are a handicraft made by women. They use scissors and paper to cut all kinds of pictures such as pomegranates, lotuses, peach blossoms, mice, fighting roosters and rabbits eating carrots.

To get rid of the old and make way for the new, every household puts up papercuts on the newly plastered window paper on the eve of Spring Festival. Chinese farmers still have the tradition of arranging farm production according to the lunar calendar. They number the years with twelve symbolic animals: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and boar. So the papercuts of the twelve animals are indispensable. The papercut of an animal according to the lunar calendar. Papercuts are done all over China, but are different in the method in different areas.
