As one of the four most famous towns in the Ming and Qing dynasties of Chinese history, Zhuxian Town is well-known for its wood engraving New Year painting. This kind of art first appeared in the Tang dynasty in the 7th century AD, then largely developed in the Song dynasty and developed to its peak period in the Ming and Qing dynasties. The contents of these paintings are various, such as historical stories, legends, fairy tales and so on. Especially after the founding of People's Republic of China, this folk art has been widely developed and taken seriously by the local government to promote the economy.
