Traditional paper cutting craft varies from place to place in China; and in Jingle county, Shanxi province, this folk art on paper which has been passed down for centuries is known for depicting subjects in an unsophisticated style and transmitting a simple, primitive touch.

More than 100 paper cutting pieces by Jingle artisans, dated to the early 20th century, are on display through April 20 at the Prince Kung's Mansion in Beijing.
