Inside tulou

Fujian province, China – tulou & cork / Prowincja Fujian w Chinach – tulou i korek, 2015.01

One of Fujian’s highlights are the tulous – the impressive earth and wood clan buildings dating centuries ago. Here are some photos of that wonder… And right after that – a video bringing you the very unknown art of cork painting/carving practised in the capital city of Fujian – Fuzhou.

Jedną z większych atrakcji prowincji Fujian stanowią tulou – ogromne budynki o konstrukcji ziemno-drewnianej, pobudowane przed stuleciami. Poniżej zamieszczam zdjęcia tych cudów architektury… A zaraz potem – filmik o niezbyt znanej sztuce rzeźbienia w korku, praktykowanej w stolicy prowincji – Fuzhou.

However they keep their ancestral tulou apartment homes under padlock, only returning home during festival for family reunion.
