About the Great Wall
In c. 220 B.C., under Qin Shi Huang, sections of earlier fortifications were joined together to form a united defense system against invasions from the north. Construction continued up to the Ming dynasty (1368–1644), when the Great Wall became the world's largest military structure. Its historic and strategic importance is matched only by its architectural significance.
About Talented Disabled Artist: Hongbing Yang
Chinese Paper Cutting Art is nearly a lost fork art form. Deriving from the 6th century of China, this art form requires very dexterous hands and using scissors and gravers, making it a predominately art by ladies.
How could Hongbing, Yang, an ALS patient make it?
Yang was diagnosed with ALS disease, or commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease at the age of 10. This disease leads the patients to gradually lose the mobility of the body bit by bit. Yang even needs help to move his hands but refuses to succumb to his fate. Confined to home and lack of instruction, he combines the use of his hands and face to teach himself Chinese paper cuts and distinguish himself with his unique exquisite paper cutting patterns and styles.
Though there is a not much need of this form of art in the rural area, Yang says, “The red thin paper-the medium of Chinese paper cuts-has always been bearing my dreams.” View More Story
