Bai Dacheng’s Zongren Family Museum
Baidacheng is a traditional Chinese craftsman. He created a special type for playing the Chinese shadow play, with different characters standing on a plate. When he knocks on the edge of the plate, all the characters made by animal hair will move and show different gestures needed in a Peking Opera play.
Baidacheng’s masterpieces have been popular just from the beginning of 1990s. Before that, his creation was limited because of the political environment. After 1990, his works had been recognized by more and more foreigners, and earned him a great fame. Zongren is not only a material for a Peking Opera or shadow play, but also an elegant art work.
