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.

Yanta Cotton Fiber Painting

Cotton fiber painting(雁塔棉絮画) is a special painting form in Shaanxi province. It use high quality cotton as the material, after high temperature and medication, then dye the cotton, we can get colored cotton. When the craftsman draw the cotton fiber painting, he should draw the picture on a paper, draw the clear outline of each part, then use colored cotton to stick.


















The last process can be divided into bottom layer stick and cover layer stick. The two stick layers can make the painting more vivid and visual. As the main material of cotton fiber painting, cotton is cheap and easy to get. And cotton fiber painting has the characteristics of abundance of colors, fine three-dimensional effect, intensely alive and lifelike images.

Xuelu Town folk craftsman and Shaanxi folk arts and crafts association member Zhang Baolan has devoted to the research and creating of Yanta cotton fiber painting. Her works “Peacock and Peony” and “Runaway Horses” won prizes in the competition of The First Session National Arts and Crafts Good Item and the works were sent to take part in an exhibition in the USA. In the second session of the China International Folk Art Festival, her "Eight Cats", “A Portrait of Eight Breed", "Rose" and other six works were selected in Shaanxi folk art exhibition.


















Cotton can be used to doubling thread and weaving and it has been passed on through generations, which becomes the symbol of agricultural civilization. But to use cotton to draw paintings is a unique creation of Shaanxi people. Through constant experiment and exercise, Yanta cotton fiber painting finally turn cotton into visual language. Yanta cotton fiber painting skillfully fused ink techniques and folk painting into one, turning it from folk handicrafts into elegant creation. As a result, Yanta cotton fiber painting is a unique treasure in Xi’an culture.
