We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

(Figurines of drama characters made of the hair of a pig or a horse, cloth and silk, listed as a city-level intangible cultural heritage in Beijing)

The making of Figurines of drama characters (bristle dolls) made of the hair of a pig or a horse, cloth and silk, has been listed as a city-level intangible cultural heritage in Beijing.

Zongren Bai is the nickname of Mr.Dacheng Bai, a local folk craftsman, famous for making"Zongren Bai"(bristle dolls), and his products - "Zongren Bai", a kind the figurines of drama characters made of the hair of a pig or a horse, cloth and silk, listed as a city-level intangible cultural heritage in Beijing.

Putting the figurines on a copper gong, then beating the gong with a wood stick, you know what has happned? All the figurines are dancing!
That's how performance of bristle dolls earns its name, "show on a plate."

The making of bristle dolls dates back to over 100 years ago. It is deeply linked to Peking opera and leather shadow puppet performances. the faces were painted to imitate closely the masks of Peking opera. The last procedure for the making requires sticking a flexible bristle under the bust of the puppets so that this elasticity enables them to move rhythmically on a copper gong when people strike the gong.
