Walking only 5 minutes from the exit of Communication University Metro Line, you can find a 3-storied building named Dong Fang Gu Yuan Art Market. Inside is a huge selection of beautiful Chinese art, such as hand-made carvings at Teng Yun Ge.

The owner of the shop tells me that all the carving products are from his hometown in Fujian Province. Carving products from Fujian are renowned in China. The shop features woodcarving, bamboo carving, stone carving, jade carving, and colored glaze carving.

The wood carving products are made of various woods, some of which are really rare, like Zitan wood. All products are made with superb carving skills. My favorite figures are people from the stories of ancient Chinese history.

A telephone carved with a dragon and phoenix also caught my eyes. It was a really nice piece of work, with a lamp standing on the pedestal. The owner says it's a real telephone. Once plugged in, you can make phone calls with it.

Further inside is for the display of stone carvings. The prices of stone carvings are much higher than those of woodcarvings, ranging from RMB 1000 to RMB30,000, depending on the sizes and designs.

I took note of a particular type of stone carving, called Shoushan Stone carving. It has a history of over 1500 years and famous throughout the country.

What I appreciate:
Excellent carving skills, lovely carved figures

What customers appreciate:
Splendid display of hand-made carvings, a wide choice of items as far as prices and sizes are concerned.
