An exhibition of intangible cultural heritage of the Li and Miao ethnic groups was held in the Culture Park in Baisha Li Autonomous County from April 17 to 19.

In the exhibition, people can explore items including dragon quilts (a kind of embroidery), mud pottery, bone hairpins, double-sided embroidery and more, which are the rarely seen intangible cultural relics of Li and Miao.

"Baisha intangible cultural heritage is the cultural heritage of the Li and the Miao people in Baisha County, which connects the past and the future of Baisha. This exhibition will allow more people to gain a deeper understanding of Baisha," said Fu Shaoling, director of Baisha Cultural Museum.

The exhibition is divided into five areas: a photo exhibit, a real products exhibition, a show by intangible cultural heritage successors, an intangible cultural heritage performances and Li pottery-making.

"I used to think that the natural environment of Baisha is very good and the scenery is beautiful, but now I realize that Baisha also has such rich historical culture through this exhibition," a female tourist from south China’s Guangxi Province said.

To protect and inherit the intangible cultural heritage of Li and Miao, Baisha County has adopted many measures, such as building training bases and exhibition halls, as well as introducing new laws.

At present, Baisha has a total of 33 intangible cultural heritage projects, of which some have been listed on both county and national intangible cultural heritage protection lists.
