The Fading Art of Traditional Chinese Dongyang Wood Carving

Dongyang wood carving is a dying Chinese art that’s been around since the Tang Dynasty, which began in the 7th century. This style of sculpting, also known as white woodcarving, features multiple, neat layers that can form a 3D, mural-like creation.

Perhaps the most ambitious manifestation of Dongyang wood carving is seen on enormous mural-like panels intended to be hung as artwork as seen here.
