The Charm of Wood - The Exhibition of Fujian Woodcarving

Keywords: Fujian, Wood, craftsmanship

Fujian woodcarving, one of the “four famous woodcarvings” in China, is renowned for its exquisite craftsmanship, especially the circular, detailed openwork carvings. It originated from architectural decorations and statues of Buddha, and developed into five categories: longan wood, boxwood, gold lacquer, lacquer and root carvings. Longan woodcarvings are usually quaint and unique, and box woodcarvings, exquisite and lifelike; gold lacquer woodcarvings are resplendent and magnificent, and most of them are statues of Buddha.

This exhibition displays a number of Fujian woodcarvings from the Qing dynasty, including food containers, birthday scrolls inscribed with good wishes and architectural components. These antiques demonstrate the artistic features and complicated manufacturing processes of this art form.

The craft, reflecting the wisdom and endeavors of carvers, was popular and widespread, from architecture to furnishings, and was closely connected with daily life. Many cultural connotations Confucianism, secular and religious beliefs of the local people during the Ming and Qing dynasties are reflected in these exhibits.
