Process characteristics

The crafting technique of ZhuXianZhen's wooden block New Year's prints combines wooden blocks and engraving blocks, using a watermark printing method with a wide variety of types, with materials that are processed through firing techniques, and with a focus on using high-quality paper. The colors are bright, solemn, deep, and rich, and the themes and content are mostly taken from historical plays, novels, myths, and folktales. The prints have a strong local flavor and folk interest, unique local colors, and a simple and ancient national style. The lines of the knives and engraving tools used in the prints are rough, bold, and unrestrained, with a strong contrast between dark and light elements. This is especially prominent in the clothing patterns of the god figures, giving the prints a local flavor and a pure, solid, strong, and tidy artistic style with a northern ethnic feel.
