Dongyang Wood Carvings
Photo Notes
Dongyang wood carvings are named after Dongyang in Zhejiang Province, and are listed as the three carvings in Zhejiang together with Qingtian stone carvings and boxwood carvings. The people in Dongyang are said to have begun wood sculpturing as early as over 1,000 years ago. They handed down the craftsmanship through their families, creating a great number of brilliant craftworks as well as great craftsmen. Dongyang has become the famous “hometown of carving.”

The Dongyang wood carving process can be divided into designing drawings, making roughcasts, and slicking. However, craftsmen with outstanding skills at carving and painting skip the procedure of designing drawings and carving the wood directly. When creating a new piece of work, they work out the drawings first and then carve them out by memory. Nevertheless, few are competent enough to engage in such a complicated process.
