Folk Arts (a non-material cultural heritage by UNESCO) heritage continues.
China’s mother river, the Yellow River travels through eight provinces and discharges finally into Bohai Sea out of Dongying, Shandong. Heze is the first out of eight metro-cities greeting the Yellow River’s arrival. Along the banks of the Yellow River breeds Chinese civilization and witnesses it unfolds throughout China over the centuries. In Heze, the effort of folk arts preservation is a skill and very intense. Government at all levels have allocated resources to protect and preserve those heritages as benchmarks for work performances in management at all levels. The Grandma here said to us that she is lucky to have her beautiful grand-daughter learn her skills. Heze has brilliant folk art heritages, from papercutting, woodblock painting, local operas, Kungfu, Zither-making, weaving, and Water Margin festivity, etc. Heze rivals with Weifang as the southern capital of Chinese folk arts.
