An Enchanting Place for Ethnic Handicrafts and Accessories

[ From: David Cheng | Published: 2007-10-24 Views: 1750 | Booked times: 56 ]

With 56 ethnic groups, Chinese art comes from many different cultures and backgrounds. And Chinese handicrafts you see in stores include designs from many different ethnic groups. All of their cultures contribute to the richness in the design of Chinese handicrafts today.

 

The Panjiayuan area Mona Antique Gallery specializes in authentic handicrafts and accessories of various Chinese ethnic groups in southern China, including Miao, Dong, and Yi.

 

Miao ethnic group is famous for its silver craftsmanship. The store features various silver ornaments, which the Miaos use for hats, clothes, necklaces and bracelets.  For great embroidery works, the store offers the embroidery made by the women of Dong using techniques handed down through generations. For lacquer paintings and drawings, Yi artists provide high-quality aesthetically pleasing works.

 

As expected from a store with so much to choose from, prices vary a great deal. For gifts and souvenirs, you can get many items for under RMB 100.  Some of the more intricate works, though, can cost more than RMB 10,000.
