Woodblock printing is a type of traditional painting that people hang on their doors, windows or walls across China to ward off evil spirits and express good wishes.

Nowadays, craftsmen are not just confining themselves in portraying door gods, and a wide range of themes are sought after by consumers.

Mianzhu woodblock printing is one of the four most prestigious schools of Woodblock paintings in China, which flourished in the city and the surrounding areas in Sichuan province during a period between the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
