When the door closes, God opens a window. This sentence has encouraged Wang Hui to lead a courageous life with his hands and perseverance.

Wang Hui is a craftsman of stone carving, who lost his legs in an accident at the age of 4. Overcoming despair, he has learned to walk with a chair, completing his primary and middle school education.

With encouragement from his family, Wang started learning to carve stone in 1989 and gradually grasped the skill. He started a sculpture store in 1993 after overcoming a lot of hardships.
