BEIJING, Oct. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Alongside the rising enthusiasm for traditional Chinese culture, gourd pyrography in Zaozhuang City of east China’s Shandong Province is catching more and more attention from people from near and far.

As a typical intangible culture heritage in China, gourd pyrography is originated from the Han Dynasty (202 BC-AD 220) and prospered in Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), characterized by its vivid and stereopsis in vision perception.
