Photo Friday: Swiss Paper Cutting


The Swiss are masters of the ancient folk art of paper cutting (Scherenschnitt in German) and we saw beautiful representations of the work in Switzerland.  The framed paper cutting above portrays the original Our Chalet building in Adelboden, built in 1922.

Below are boxes of chocolate sold at Maison Cailler in Broc depicting an exquisite Scherenschnitt design:


The art of paper cutting originally began in China almost at the same time as paper was invented there in 100 A.D.  The craft came to Switzerland in the 1800s and is still very popular today.
