There appears to be two commonly occurring motif combinations in the Shui carriers that I have collected or seen and I am wondering whether this is may reflect locality or whether there is another association. In the top panel either a 'butterfly' motif or, for the want of a better description, a foliate design is found. The lower panel that appears in combination with these two motifs appears consistent as illustrated in the examples.
The 'butterfly' panel is combined with lower panel bearing a central circle and a combinaton of bats/butterflies.
The 'foliate' panel is combined with a simple floral and foliate design.
I understand that in a number of areas certain gifted women produce the paper cut designs which would lend credence to the motif combinations being representative of a particular locality. However, I have several examples of both motif combinations collected in the same town indicating that the motif combinations are set.
