Yu County paper-cutting is a national intangible cultural heritage. Ancient costume drama characters can “travel through time” via Zhou Shuying’s paper cuts, curling, figure skating, freestyle skiing and enjoying other ice sports. Zhou, together with other female villagers, made snow and ice sports-themed paper-cuts as a tribute to 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
