Chinese folk art is an important part of China's extremely rich culture. Each section of China had its own styles, and the entire output of art was enormous.

Chinese art, like Chinese literature, goes back many centuries.  Early themes were developed from religious and supernatural beliefs or from the natural environment and landscape.  Chinese paintings are generally placed in one of four categories : Religious, Portraits, Landscapes, or Flora and Fauna.  Religious paintings usually represent Buddhas and Taos Gods.

The splendid traditional Chinese Bronzeware culture were created by the ancient Chinese slaves.  The beautiful and complicated patterns on the Bronzeware reveal the craftsmen's wisdom and superb skills.  They reflect the essential concepts of Chinese Slavery Society and are rare historical relics.

Porcelain, also called 'fine china', featuring its delicate texture, pleasing color, and refined sculpture, has been one of the earliest artworks introduced to the western world through the Silk Road.  They were made in the form of all kinds of items, such as bowls, cups, tea sets, vases, jewel cases, incense burners, musical instruments and boxes for stationary and chess, as well as pillows for traditional doctors to use to feel one's pulse.

Chinese jadeware has a long history. Jade objects of the Liangzhu Culture of the Neolithic Age were unearthed in Zhejiang Province, and they appear delicate and beautiful.  Jadeware production skills were greatly improved in the Zhou and Shang dynasties, and jade objects of that time include production tools, weapons, daily utensils, ornaments and sacrificial vessels.
