( Updated: 2019-03-18

Passing on from craftsmen generation to generation, Qufu sculpture has a 2,400-year history.

The wood engraving, based on a kind of raw material named Pistacia chinensis, has become one of Shandong province's intangible cultural heritages.

With a strong reputation around the world, not only has the engraving work become rare treasures, but it has also produced many excellent carving artisans. Chu Desheng, a Shandong native, is one of the representative inheritors.
