Yantai inheritors of traditional Chinese paper-cutting art made more than 200 different vivid tiger-themed works to celebrate the upcoming Chinese Lunar New Year, which falls on Feb 1, and marks the beginning of the Year of the Tiger. Full of strong Chinese New Year flavor, these works were completed in three months.
