Noisy sculpturing draws crowd

HEBEI yesterday began its week-long culture display at the Expo with folk arts, including acrobatics, martial arts and a shadow puppet show.

Artists from the province set up a dozen booths at the Baosteel Stage in Zone B at the Pudong site to demonstrate traditional crafts, such as wood print pictures, relief sculptures on iron and clay figurines.

Visitors can make and buy their own works at the stage through to Tuesday.

The relief sculpture on an iron panel was the most popular display as brothers Guo Haibo and Guo Hailong, two of the few guardians of the skill, hammered out a lotus on the panel.

Ken Hughey, a college professor from New Zealand, was attracted to the booth by their banging.

"It's a fantastic artwork, although quite noisy," he said.

Woodprint picture veteran Liu Guosheng, 54, brought several wood molds to the stage for people to create their own pictures for 10 yuan each.

Some 30-minute acrobatic shows, including the province's most famous "Pagoda of Bowls," will be performed at 10:30am, 3pm and 7pm on stage at Celebration Square during the week.
