03 Cultural stories along the route

Chongqing Bayu Folk-Custom Museum was established in 1994. With its exquisite exhibitions and strong regional cultural characteristics, the museum has become an important window for presenting Yubei’s image and promoting Bayu culture.

What attracts tourists the most is that there are over 40 large carved beds in the late Qing Dynasty. They are just like a part of a folk-custom painting of the Bayu area with rich content and exquisite carvings. With colorful and varied carvings, superb carving skills, and diverse carving techniques, be it expressed in a hollowed-out (layers are stacked on top of each other, up to five layers) or embossed way, there is no one would not marvel at the delicate carving technique.

Hailed as the No.1 bed in China, the gold-lacquered carved bed with six posts and five eaves is one of the masterpieces. Apart from the bed, the museum’s five treasured collections also include the Qing-Dynasty golden woodcarver shrine, Qing-dynasty carved figures, an extra-large double-stepped bed with auspicious animal designs, the gilded-carving Buddha statue in the Qing Dynasty, as well as the gold and lacquer wood carving architrave. The five treasured collections of the museum were all carved in wood. There has always been a saying in Chongqing that “the finest stone carvings are in Dazu and the finest woodcarvings in Yubei.”
