"Wyncinanki" (pronounced, vee-shee-Nan-kee). My media specialist has a
neat multicultural poster of "ABC" of different arts/crafts around the

Below are some web sites, which may have links to the info you are seeking
(?)

Intricate paper cutting can be found in China, Mexico and Germany as well.

Hope this helps.
