Win Together by Wang Xiancun

Boxwood carving, a traditional folk handicraft, utilizes boxwood as its primary material, primarily crafted in Yueqing City, Zhejiang Province. Renowned for its slow growth, boxwood is often associated with the adage, "It takes a thousand years to grow a boxwood." Its enduring appeal lies in its resilient yet smooth texture, fine grain resembling ivory, and elegant yellow hue that deepens over time. These qualities, combined with its simple yet beautiful appearance and moderate hardness, make boxwood an exceptional choice for crafting intricate small-scale sculptures.

Wang Xiancun, a senior arts and crafts artist, a master of arts and crafts in Zhejiang Province, a member of the Chinese Folk Literature and Artists Association, a member of the Wood Sculpture Committee of the China Arts and Crafts Association, studied under Mr. Yu Dingliang, a master of Chinese arts and crafts. Over the years, his exhibited works have won dozens of gold and silver awards. He has participated in domestic and foreign wood carving skills competitions many times and won awards. He has been employed by Yueqing Vocational High School to teach boxwood carving.
