Have you ever heard of iron painting? It¡¯s handmade with iron and a hammer instead of paint and a brush. The art originated more than 300 years ago with a blacksmith in central China. This unique artwork is a good option for ornaments and presents.

 

There is an iron painting shop in southeast Beijing. I visited them recently.

 

As soon as I entered the shop, I was fascinated by their work. Most are vivid patterns outlined by black iron stripes. Some of them even have colors, like red plum blossoms.

 

The shopkeeper Mr. Lu introduced to me a work called ¡°The Guest-greeting Pine.¡± This old tree is a symbol of Mt. Huang, the most beautiful mountain in China. The lifelike pattern is a miniature reproduction. The original artwork is huge and was created by a famous artist. It is now in the Great Hall of the People at Tiananmen Square.

 

They also sell small framed iron paintings such as pandas, landscapes, birds, and flowers, which are easily carried anywhere.

 

What I appreciated

Unique iron painting, outstanding workmanship

 

What customers appreciate

Authentic Chinese handicrafts, good for decorations and gifts
