Description

The museum is a modern homage to the beauties of the woodcarver's art, with over 1000 pieces of original wood sculpture on display. Red sandalwood is the timber of choice, but there are plenty of other precious woods including Burmese ebony and tropical mahogany. Among the spectacular pieces are a scale model of a corner tower of the Forbidden City, a reproduction of 320 dragons from the Longquan Temple in Shanxi Province, and a large number of intricate furniture pieces. All of them were made without a single nail or screw.
