Chinese paper-cut art has a long history, with a history of more than 2,000 years. According to different regions, many paper-cut schools have also been derived. Among them, Foshan paper-cut, as one of the representatives of the Southern School of paper-cut, has various types such as copper chisel, solid color, copper writing, copper lining, etc. It is cut by “carving” and combined with the unique knife-awakening technique, so that each work can be Vivid and detailed.
The inheritance and protection of intangible cultural heritage is inseparable from the efforts and contributions of every inheritor. Over the years, teacher Rao Baolian has been committed to inheriting Foshan folk paper-cutting art, exploring together with teacher Chen Yongcai and his disciples, restoring the copper chisel paper-cutting skills that have been lost for decades, making this Foshan art treasure revived. Now, she looks forward to making more young people fall in love with paper-cutting culture, learn the art of paper-cutting, and experience the infinite charm of intangible cultural heritage through the cooperation with the mobile game “Fantasy Westward Journey”.
The core of the inheritance and protection of intangible cultural heritage is to enable more people to understand intangible cultural heritage and discover the beauty of traditional Chinese art behind it. This time, the mobile game “Fantasy Westward Journey” cooperates with the inheritors of the intangible cultural heritage to create interesting and high-quality content, showing the charm of traditional art, and hopes that more young people will join the ranks of the protection of intangible cultural heritage. In the future, the mobile game “Fantasy Westward Journey” and NetEase will continue to work on exploring the charm of intangible cultural heritage, and continue to explore new ways of inheriting traditional culture in the era of mobile Internet.
