Walking on Stilts

 

During major festivals in the countryside, people give shows by walking on stilts. They wear heavy make-ups and are dressed in stage costumes to play Dragon Dance and Lion Dance and do sword stunts. The most attractive item is the show about Tang Sanzang, a Buddhist monk in Tang Dynasty(618AD-907AD), and his three disciples traveling to the west to fetch Buddhist scripture.
