The art of bone carving dates back to the stone age, and is still alive today. One place to find stone carving is a shop in the Pearl Market. The shop covers a wide range of bone carvings, including necklaces, bracelets, jewelry cases, hairpins, and lifelike figurines.

The lovely animal figurines are especially eye-catching. One cute piece featured a big elephant dragging a cart on which a small elephant stood. I was amazed at its delicate design. Another one I liked was a frog with a big open mouth. It is used to collect coins.

The most complicated carvings were figurines of people in gowns. The patterns were very detailed, and required special skills to make them look archaic.

The shop also features glass cases with small ornaments. You may pick and choose from them make necklaces and bracelets.

Many bone carvings have a marked price. Price of a hairpin, for example was RMB 285. Price of people figurines cost from RMB 800 to RMB 2000. But everything is negotiable. Make sure to bargain.


What I appreciate:
Various bone carvings with fine craft

What customers appreciate:
