Chinese folk handicrafts good for gifts and decoration

[ From: Jason Jia | Published: 2008-12-01 Views: 3626 | Booked times: 55 ]

At the northeast of Tian¡¯anmen Square lies a Chinese folk handicrafts shop. A wooden tablet hangs over the gate that reads ¡®Folk Graft Gift¡¯ in English. Don¡¯t miss this: they carry unique handmade Chinese gifts and adornments.

 

On my recent visit to this shop, I found something that impressed me: bamboo decorations!

 

According to the shopkeeper Mr. Zhou, customers could have anything inscribed on them, including their names and the English versions of famous Chinese books.

 

If you have no time to visit the Terra-Cotta Warriors in Xi¡¯an, the shop has small replicas of the warriors.

 

I also saw replicas of ancient bronze statues and other objects, such as daggers, goblets, cooking vessels, and Pixiu (a legendary animal).

 

If you like Kung Fu movies, pick up one of their swords. They are made in the famous Shaolin Temple. They are rather heavy, so handle with care.

 

What I appreciated:

Folk handicrafts, decorations
