Shoushan stone carvings

Shoushan stone carvings

Shoushan (Chinese: 首山石; Pinyin: Shǒushān) stone carving is an art originating in Fujian Province(福建省 Fújiàn shěng)in Eastern China.

The stones used in carving are also known as agalmatolite and are mined in the Shoushan village in northern Fujian. Use of the stone for carving can be traced back as far as the Southern Dynasties and have long been used to produce handicrafts and later on in the Ming Dynasty, seals.
