The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Chinese Folk Art, Festivals, and Symbols in Everyday Life


If you click on the title of this post, you'll be directed to a .PDF file that resides on a server at Berkeley University. It is a 37 page presentation on "Chinese folk art, festivals, and symbols in everyday life." It's a very interesting find.

When you get there, if you edit the browser line to be at a level above the presentation, you'll find an index to all sorts of interesting presentations on different cultures.

Folk art is very interesting. What makes this art form special is that it represents the life and traditions of that particular area. Thanks for the link to the file. Good information regarding Chinese Folk Art.
