China Folk Cultural Village

The China Folk Culture Village (also called ShenZhen Splendid China Folk Culture Village, 深圳中国文化) is a theme park in Shenzhen, China. It is located adjacent to the Splendid China theme park and features displays of the daily life and architecture of China's 56 ethnic groups. It was opened to the public in October 1991.






Look at the beautiful entrance to the Cultural Village. Just love the huge replica of the dragon!

Immediately, we saw this artist, Liuqipei.


Liuqipei, born in Sichuan, is the member of the provincial folk artists association. He has ardently loved painting and calligraphy since the childhood. Based on the skill handed down in the family, he applies himself to the quick silhouette with great concentration.

His works are famous for the consummate skill and smooth lines which has gained highly appraise by the friends all over the world.

In recent years, Liu took part in the Folk Art Festival held in Chengdu city and won the first prize in the silhouette contest. In 1991, he was invited to 100 Wonders In China Expo.

What's more, he has done the show in CCTV, HuBei Satellite TV, Hunan Satellite TV, Guangdong-zhujiang TV, Guangdong Satellite TV, Asia TV, Panama TV, Korea TV, and the Spring Festival Entertainment Show of Sichuan TV, which were well received by the masses.

And also Liu has performed his skill in front of distinguished guests and leaders of various countries.

They brought back this typical chinese folk handicrafts along with satisfaction, commendation and friendship.

Without hesitation, a guy went forward to the artist and he was given free cut-out silhouette of his face. After I had seen three wonderful cut-outs, I volunteered to have mine done. But I had to pay 40 yuan for that!

In the evening, we watched the Chinese Folk dances being performed but we were not allowed to take pictures.
