Song Bingqian and Tang Wuxiong, two intangible cultural heritage inheritors in Dong’an County, spent half a year to make a long paper-cutting scroll of 100 tigers, to mark the Year of the Tiger in Chinese calendar. They adopted different techniques to create these 100 tigers, in different shapes and colors, on a 30-meter-long and 0.35-meter-wide scroll. The photo above shows villagers display the 100-tiger paper-cutting scroll at Shiba Village in Dong’an County.
