Paper Crafting Technique
With paper crafting techniques and painting skills, simple materials such as bamboo splints, rice paper strips, coloured papers, silk fabrics, etc. are turned into all kinds of crafted products. Paper crafting plays an important role in traditional festive celebrations and religious rituals. Crafted products commonly found in Hong Kong include fa pau (flowery rockets), effigies of the Ghost King, lanterns, dragons, lions and Chinese unicorns, as well as paper offerings. The technique embodies the history and culture of different ethnic groups and carries significant social and cultural values.
