[ SlideShow ] 根雕  [5]  [10]  [20]  [50]  [100]
根雕,是以树根(包括树身、树瘤、竹根等)的自生形态及畸变形态为艺术创作对象,通过构思立意、艺术加工及工艺处理,创作出人物、动物、器物等艺术形象作品。根雕艺术是发现自然美而又显示创造性加工的造型艺术,所谓“三分人工,七分天成”,就是说在根雕创作中,大部分应利用根材的天然形态来表现艺术形象,少部分进行人工处理修饰,因此,根雕又被称为“根的艺术”或“根艺”。

Root carvings are artworks featuring people, animals or objects carved out of natural or distorted tree roots (including tree trunks, burls and bamboo roots etc) through careful designing and artistic processing. In the creation of a root carving work, the most part should be presented through the natural shapes of the root material, with a small part being recreated. So, root carving is also called "the art of the root" or "root art".

There are three major types of root carving: 1) for natural root material with flaws, carving is used to remedy the flaws; 2) thorough carving, which means carving shapeless root material into a work of art; 3) taking advantage of the natural shape of the root material; for example, carving a head or a face in part of the material, leaving the rest unchanged. This is to integrate the natural beauty with artificial art, making them complementary to each other and bringing a wonderful enjoyment to anyone who sees the work.

The earliest root carving works existing today are the "talisman" and the horn-shaped ware of the Warring States Period, which were successively unearthed from the ancient tombs in Hubei Province in the 1980s. The excavations demonstrate that root carving was already a highly-valued special art form in ancient times. During the Song and Yuan Dynasties, the art of root carving enjoyed booming development in the imperial courts and among ordinary people. Some painters even featured root carvings in their works.

In the Painting of A Hundred Musical Instruments, many of the decorating articles are root carving works. In the Ming Dynasty, root carvings began to have even more unique artistic features. In the Qing Dynasty, a large batch of root carving artists emerged, bringing the art to a higher level. Today, a lot of root carving treasures of the Qing Dynasty are kept in the Palace Museum and the Summer Palace of Beijing as well as in Yuyuan Garden of Shanghai.
