Shown is a piece of gravestone rubbing, or "tapian" in Chinese, created out of an ancient gravestone by cinnabar on Chinese rice paper in the Guanzhong Folk Art Museum in Xi'an, capital of China's northwestern Shaanxi province on Thursday, January 10, 2013. Gravestone rubbing is the practice of preserving the image of the surface of a stone on a paper by rubbing the stone over the paper. ( Kun)

The museum boasts a large collection of more than 33,600 Shaanxi folk culture relics from the Zhou, Qing, Han and Tang dynasties, including 40 re-located Ming and Qing Style ancient folk courtyards and more than 8,600 stone hitching-posts from different dynasties.
