A large scale exhibition celebrating China's intangible cultural heritage has recently opened in South China's Yunnan Province.

The show features a wealth of ancient art forms that are regarded as the key to protecting art traditions of the nation.

For many of the local residents in Yunnan, it's their first time ever to enjoy a shadow puppet show at such close range.

The exhibition of intangible cultural heritage boasts an interactive style, where spectators are encouraged to join skilled craftsmen for discussions and hands-on practice to learn more about the age-old arts.

The show also features displays of woodblock New Year Paintings, which originated from Wuqiang of North China's Hebei Province.

There is also colored glazed pottery that was popularized in the Tang Dynasty over a thousand years ago.
