Fengxiang Wood-engraving New Year Picture is as important as other wood-engraving folk arts of Tianjin Yangliuqing, Suzhou Taohuwu and Shangdong Weifang. It is well-known owing to its long history and unique artistic features. It was formulated as one of the first national non-material cultural heritages by the Ministry of Culture in 2006. Due to the production pattern of folk art, namely, usually of the pattern that it is family-based handicraft, and it is mainly handed down from generation to generation by oral passing on and with recorded written works, so it is natural that the research about it rather challenging. Therefore, although the Fengxiang Wood-engraving New Year Picture has long been perceived, there is no objective and scientific professional works of research about it. Meanwhile, the reality that there lacks expertise of the research on it makes us realize the urgency of rescuing this important cultural heritage. The paper argues that regarding the specific characteristics of this artistic form based on traditional techniques, the most important thing to do is to preserve it, and only in this way can it be inherited, developed and studied. The paper comments on the artistic values of Fengxiang Wood-engraving New Year Pictures, it analyzes the current situation of it. The paper argues that the problems are mainly as the follows:1) the historic continuity is not clear enough; 2)the production organization is not well organized; 3)there lacks inherent expertise of it. Based on these, the paper puts forward three tentative measures for its protection after an analysis on its current situation. They are as the follows: strengthening the administration and intensifying the system; emphasizing rescuing and recruiting successors; integrating resources and broadening the production and marketing. Finally, the paper deals with six aspects of it regarding the issue of ingenuity about non-material cultural heritage, the inherent expertise of it, the leading role the government in the protection of non-material cultural heritage, the production protection problem of the non-material cultural heritage, the relationship between the protection of traditional art and promoting modern civilization, the application system and the backwardness of the protection for folk culture, and it is in the hope that all these can provide valuable references for the protection of our nation's non-material cultural heritage protection.
