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.
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.
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.
LI Ya-hua now spends more time on training students for the carving skills.
Xiamen is located on the west coast of Taiwan Straits. It’s also the host city of China Xiamen International Stone Fair that has been held for 19 consecutive years since 2001.
