The first exhibition of Shanghai woolen needlepoint tapestry in Europe is being held at the China Cultural Center in Brussels through Sept 18.

The two-month exhibition showcases the craftsmanship of woolen needlepoint tapestry (rongxiu in Chinese) - a state-level intangible cultural heritage in China, as well as its inheritance and perseverance.

All works on display were crafted by woolen embroidery masters in Shanghai, fusing Eastern and Western art. The exhibition covers diverse elements, such as replicas of western painting, images of natural landscape, European scenery and cultural hallmarks.
