Yungang Silk Doll

Last updated by nancy at 2014/5/9

Yungang Silk Doll is remarkably similar in shape and spirit to human being.

In Ming and Qing daynasties, Yungang people had kept a habit to buy silk or clay dolls for good luck. After the Liberation, clay dolls were eliminated. Meanwhile, the silk dolls are becoming more and more popular. The silk dolls in Yungang are commonly made of ghatpot, silk, brocade, muslin and so on. With these materials, these silk dolls are very gorgeous.
