Root carving is a traditional art in China which is not completely artificial, but created by both human beings and nature. Ancient artists created lifelike and vivid works by a special technique using expression based on the roots' natural forms.

Integrating ingenuity and craftiness, root carving not only employs ways of expressions similar to wood carvings, sculptures and stone carvings, but also demonstrates the unique features of root carving by absorbing the techniques exhibited in the creation of other carving arts.
