The exhibition will stay in my home Hui’an until February 9 and also tour to Enjoy Art Museum in Beijing 798 Art Zone, and the Hebei Quyang stone carving non-material cultural heritage museum until the month of April.

Due to the differences in regional environment and culture, the process and style have distinct differences. The North’s large-scale stone carvings emphasize block surfaces and  the momentum of carving, most combined with architecture. The Southern carvings are mostly used as articles for amusement, furnishings and displays, and the decorative patterns on the building, exquisitely and intelligently, with auspicious meaning.

A total of about 50 artists attended the event on the theme of “Regional Character and Industry Development of Chinese Stone Carving Art “.
