Nianhua (年畫) CNY paintings

(榴開百年)

For many centuries the Chinese people have decorated their homes during the Chinese New Year (CNY) with brightly-coloured pictures printed on paper by woodblock painting.  I have published 2 pages on nianhua about religious pictures and symbols of good luck.  Please have a look.  May I wish you a happy and prosperous Year of the Sheep!
