7000 Chinese Characters Carved on a 20 Centimeter Mammoth Teeth


Chongqing - November 17 is the last day of Chongqing Gala of Time. After a week-long cultural carnival, visitors and citizens have enjoyed colorful culture from different districts and counties of Chongqing. The last day of the cultural carnival presents featured culture in Bishan District, including a qipao dress show and famous micro-carvings.

The Bishan micro-carving process is based on gold, silver, jade, ivory, precious stone, and hair. The main content is poetry, famous paintings, and local culture. The carving skill originated from the Qing Dynasty to the sixth generation of descendants, becoming a prestigious symbol of Chinese culture.
