At the beginning of the Year of the Tiger, the torch for the Winter Olympics is lit in Beijing.The three-day torch relay will be held from February 2 to 4 in Beijing, Yanqing and Zhangjiakou.Among the 1,200 torchbearers participating in the relay, many are from Shijiazhuang.We caught up with some of them recently to share their stories and listen to their wishes for the ongoing Winter Olympics.”Our whole family is very proud to be selected as torchbearers,” Guo said, wishing the athletes all the best results.Half way through the Beijing Winter Olympic Games, Chinese athletes have worked hard to win glory for the country.Whenever they see the figure of struggle, Guo Mohan are moved.Guo Mohan is the inheritor of the Guo iron plate reliefs of the provincial Intangible Cultural Heritage project and an art teacher at Hebei Vocational And Technical University.As an excellent representative of women in Hebei Province, she was selected as the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics torchbearer by Hebei Women’s Federation.”My whole family is very proud to have been chosen to carry the Olympic torch.”Guo mohan recalled that she was shocked when she received the call and jumped to her feet.For her, being a torchbearer in the Winter Olympics means a lot.As a genetic carrier, has always been her stick to the path of Chinese excellent traditional craft iron relief art, with iron plate plastic time picture scroll, show the Chinese impregnable, tenacity, strength, at the same time she want to pass the iron sculpture art, good spirit, hebei story, let more people see China must in iron sculpture art.Guo Mohan is the daughter of Guo Haibo, the inheritor of guo’s iron plate reliefs in the provincial intangible Cultural Heritage project and the “Master of Folk Arts and Crafts” in the UNESCO International Organization of Folk Art.Since 2012, this “post-80s” female heir has officially started the creation of iron plate reliefs. With her own thinking and efforts, she has endowed this “hard art” with unique charm.He would swing the hammer tens of thousands of times a day, standing all day long, and his arms would often be sore and painful…Iron plate relief skill is not a good job for a girl, but Guo Mohan persevered with tenacity.The longer she worked with iron plate reliefs, the more she felt that it was “a real art, with no room for error.”In her works, she would often hammer and carve for weeks or months, but her work would probably be wasted because she was careless with the hammer.All the year round, she was immersed in the creation of iron plate reliefs. The noise was a torment to her ears, and the long-term hammering and vibration of iron plate also caused damage to her bones, but she still enjoyed it.Gradually, her skills became higher and higher, and her works gained more and more recognition. She was selected to national and provincial art exhibitions for many times, and even went abroad. She herself was awarded the title of “Hebei Province Folk Arts and Crafts Master”.In order to celebrate the opening of the Beijing Winter Olympics, Guo Mohan created the work “Beyond”, and with his father Guo Haibo carefully produced the “Tiger Baby welcome winter Olympics” series of iron plate relief works.
