Chinese Traditional Dongyang Wood Carving | The Dying Art


The folk handicraft, Dongyang woodcarving 東陽木雕, is considered one of the major schools of woodcarving in China and was first developed during the Tang Dynasty. Named after its place of origin, Dongyang in Zhejiang Province, It is characterized by exquisite high relief carving and delicate design.

The craft is still practiced in a few workshops in the region of Dongyang, China, and most commonly appears as ornate decoration on ‘everyday’ objects such as cases, cabinets, stools, desks and tables. Woodcarving is a dying art in China as this demands a lot of skills, time and dedication. Young people in China are more interested in learning other trades and look for other openings. Woodcarving in China can be traced back to the New Stone Age.
