Paper Mao-rio haha

A few other countries forged their own versions of papercutting: Japanese Kirie, Indian Sanjhi, German Scherenschnitte, Polish Wycinanki, Mexican Papel Picado, American Grandma Old Folks’ Home Art Corner… more of the same…

  1. I found a site that has a featured Wycinanki artists named Karen Kobylarz. She sells her art under the name KobyKrafts and signs her pieces Koby. They are showing about a dozen of the works for her and the hearts are especially pretty (i Think) including the Easter Egg piece although I like the angels as well. Please send people there to give her some exposure. Site name is http://www.JunesPiggyBanks.com
