Yangjiabu Woodblock New Year Pictures originated in the Ming Dynasty. West Yangjiabu is located near Weifang City in Shandong Province. The original settlers, mostly with the family name Yang, moved here from Zitong County in Sichuan Province during Hongwu reign period of the Ming Dynasty.
The woodblock pictures used as New Year decorations have mainly Buddhist themes, while the horizontal wall pictures are based on woodblock illustrations. Since 1980 experts and foreign students have come from more than 30 countries and regions, such as the United States, Japan and France, to Yangjiabu to study the art of woodblock pictures.
