Sugar painting is a traditional Chinese folk art often seen at temple fairs, markets and festive performances of Chinese opera. Using melted sugar, artists create all kinds of fragile, glistening images, including auspicious animals, Chinese zodiac signs and historical and fictional characters from Chinese opera.
