MYANMAR traditional paper toys will be showcased at art exhibitions to promote artistic skills in the country. “The aim is to show our creations which combine Myanmar traditional paper toy making techniques and fine arts” said U Aung Than, a toy maker.
Paper handicrafts are not just simple toys but are created in detail with fine arts like making sculptures. These toys appear colorful but the artist does not paint exclusively. He uses waste paper printed in various colours, he added. It takes four or five days to make the paper carvings especially for unique designs such as the two fighting cocks, a dancing peacock and dancing actor and actress. There is time difference based on the design of toy, he said.
