Two Masters of Intangible Heritage

Mr. Tianming Wang & Mr. Tao Wang

Intangible Cultural Heritage is defined as traditions or living expression inherited from our ancestors and passed on to our descendants. It includes practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, and skills that communities, groups, and individuals recognize as part of their cultural heritage.

Tao Wang and Tianming Wang are recognized as Masters of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Shandong, China; Tao Wang in the “family business” of papercutting, and Tianming Wang in the carving of extraordinary tiny versions of everyday things.
