What to Buy in Wuding Cunty?
1. Tiger-head shoes of Yi ethnic people
Shoes worn by ethnic minorities differ from those of the Han nationality because of the different cultures--especially religious beliefs. The Yis, who have worshipped tigers since ancient times, present the "Tiger Culture" in many aspects of their life.
The tiger-head shoes are made of red cloth. In the front part of the shoes, the "five sense organs" are embroidered with threads of different colours such as blue, green, black, orange, and pinks etc.
2. Hani purple rice wine
One of the most famous specialties is purple rice which is rich in protein, folic acid and trace elements such as iron, zinc, and calcium.
The purple rice wine is brewed by the local-planted purple rice that presents amber, smells fragrant and tastes mellow and thick.
3.Yi Ethnic Paper-cuts
The intelligent Yi ethnic ladies also give full play to their inspirations by making a variety of paper-cut artworks mainly used for decorating their costumes, bedrooms, waiting rooms, and most of the time for religious ceremonies. Patterns included are mainly plants, wild lives, and holy things in the Yi ethnic religion.
Dragon, phoenix, fish, birds, butterflies, peach blossoms, lotus flowers, tigers, magpies and others are what we normally can find on these artworks. They are widely used by people of different ages, social status and for different purposes.
