"Blindman's buff", a work of the Dong Ho folk painting genre.

According to researchers, this is a woodblock painting genre created by residents in Dong Ho village of Song Ho commune, Bac Ninh’s Thuan Thanh district. The paintings vividly reflect the traditional agricultural society, along with the life and practices of rural Vietnamese people.

In the past, there were 17 clans in Dong Ho village engaging in the trade. After 1945, folk painting genres like Dong Ho, Hang Trong and Kim Hoang gradually fell into oblivion. In 1990, some local artisans began collecting old paintings and woodblocks in an effort to revive the Dong Ho painting genre.

At present, the making of Dong Ho folk paintings has been recovered and has its values upheld in the contemporary life. It was recognised as part of the national intangible cultural heritage in 2013.
