Shadow Carving Queen LI Ya-hua featured One Day of Xiamen-ese

有空的时候,李雅华也会自己进行影雕制作,但是已经很少了,因为毕竟这是非常费眼睛的活儿,再要当老师或指导

Ms LI Ya-hua, founder of Huihe Stone Cultural Park in Xiamen, praised as the Queen of Shadow Carving, featured in the 99th episode of One Day of Xiamen-ese for xmnn.cn, Xiamen’s official news portal.

出生于石雕世家的李雅华从小就感受到父亲的高超手艺带给家庭的荣誉,同时她也耳濡目染喜欢上石雕,没事就整天泡在石堆里,跟着学习雕刻技艺李雅华说,而目前的石雕行业,几个问题很让人忧心:一个是老一辈的石雕师傅文化层次不高,缺乏与时俱进的艺术审美眼光;另一个是现在的年轻人吃不了苦,不大愿意从事这行,存在技艺传承上的尴尬困境

Shadow Carving is one category of Hui’an Stone Carving, said to be developed over 300 years ago. Ms LI Ya-hua grew up in our hometown Hui’an county and moved to Xiamen when she followed her father on the construction of  “Southern Fujian Stone Carving Museum” Turtle Garden in Xiamen’s Jimei funded by Singaporean industiralist Mr. Tan Kah Kee, founder of Jimei School Village and Xiamen University.

2017年在厦门举行的金砖国家领导人会晤期间,中俄两国元首共同参观闽南非物质文化遗产展,展示了影雕作品《兰闺雅集》、《惠安女赶集》等。习近平主席陪同俄罗斯总统普京近距离观摩了现场创作,李雅华身着惠安女服饰,在现场雕刻一幅尚未完成的作品《惠安女赶集》。

Dressed in traditional Hui’an women’s clothes, Ms LI was demonstrating this our hometown Hui’an-only skill , which we call “shadow carving”, on a hematite stone board in the presence of Russian President Putin and President XI Jin-ping during 2017 BRICS Summit in southeast China’s Xiamen.

展馆里,四名身着惠安传统服饰的女子正在黑色石板上击打凿点,进行影雕制作,李雅华耐心对她们进行了指导

LI Ya-hua now spends more time on training students for the carving skills.

2001年,李雅华创办了惠和石文化园;2008年,惠和石文化园被确认为福建省文化产业示范基地;2014年,惠和股份董事长李雅华被列为福建省非物质文化遗产代表性传承人;2015年11月,李雅华创办的惠和石雕公司经过改制后成功挂牌新三板

开完小会,按照惯例,李雅华会到各个展馆开始走走看看,巡视发现运转情况和存在的问题

One thought on “Shadow Carving Queen LI Ya-hua featured One Day of Xiamen-ese

  1. These months some invitations to the “Shadow Carving Queen” Ms. LI Ya-hua reached my email inbox. Appreciated but the related organizers would be bothered to offer enough information of your events so that I could pass on correctly. And would be better if you could leave a note here below.
