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.

Hu County Cloth Tiger

In 2009, Hu County cloth tiger(户县布老虎) was included in the second batch of intangible cultural heritage. As a small toy, cloth tiger has left many good memories for many Chinese children. However, as time goes by, cloth tiger has been replaced by many modern toys. The inheritor of cloth tiger in Hu County Liunan Village Liu Suijun is the only one who makes cloth tiger as an industry in Xi’an.


















Walked into the main room of his home, you will be immediately attracted by two shelves full of neatly cloth tiger. The wire bed next to the shelf is the place where Liu Suijun works every day. There littered with a variety of tools and there is a bamboo basket full of hill-like cloth tiger and semi-finished products. If you pick up a cloth tiger, you could find it very heavy. Liu Suijun revealed a little trick in the production of cloth tiger: "fillers of cloth tiger are wood, and it must be filled solidy or the tiger cannot stand." Making cloth tiger is a very complex process which tests people's "comprehensive power".

In the not too distant past, almost every woman in the village can make cloth tiger. Because cloth tiger for families with children is very important. Our ancestors believed that tiger can eat ghosts and the tiger on the home can scare ghosts. As a result, tigers in people's minds is a kind of worship. Which is equivalent to totem. It is believed that it can ward off evil spirits, exorcism. Tiger is believed as a security and peace auspicious animal, it has actually become a very practical cultural symbols.


















In an era of medical technology underdeveloped, many children died because of illness. Then we should use cloth tiger to exorcism, cure disease, in addition to disaster, so as to get a cloth tiger has become an important ritual. Before the child is born, his grandmother began making cloth tiger. When the child was to hold the full moon ceremony, the grandmother would give the cloth tiger to her grandson (or granddaughter). If this grandmother did not give the children the cloth tiger, and the child misfortunately died, the grandmother would have been to be blamed, but her heart will be very guilty. To make a cloth tiger is not easy for ordinary rural women, because it is a time-consuming, laborious, and expensive labor. So the grandmother generally makes a cloth tiger to the first child of each daughter, so that the daughter’s other children can continue to play. In addition to the toys, decorations of cloth tiger, children often also worn tiger hat, tiger-head shoes, tiger apron. Cloth tiger not only has a strong sense of decorative and sense of exorcism, but also has a high practical value.
