“Heart Made Heavenly Match” 10-day-long Hui’an Southern Style Sculpture Art Exhibition kicked off on 17th Oct in the Hall 11, north on the 3rd floor of National Museum of China, Beijing. Total of 108 pieces by 55 sculptors in stone, wood and jade are on exhibition.


In China’s sculpture circle we have such a saying as ” North Quyang and South Hui’an”. Quyang is in northern China’s Hebei province, and my hometown Hui’an, you may already know, is in southeastern China’s Fujian province across from Taiwan.


Hui’an Stone Carving can be dated back to the period of 5 Dynasties 1100 years ago. In the year of 2003, Hui’an was awarded the name as ” The Stone Carving Capital of China” by China Arts and Crafts Association, and 2015 the name as “The Stone Carving Capital of the World” by World Crafts Council.
