Guangzhou woodcarving is one type of Guangzhou carving techniques, which is well known for its delicate and intricate craftsmanship. The woodcarving divides into architectural carving and furniture carving. Most of the architectural carving articles are made of camphor woods, which are carved to be hall couches, windows and doors, screens, and God cases; rosewood furniture and camphor-wood chests are the most famous works among the furniture carving articles. Take rosewood furniture for example, it has inherited the traditional carving and wood structuring techniques, with simple and elegant modeling, fine carving, smooth polishing, shiny paint, and consistency and durability, and is high-grade and functional artwork for oriental style halls. Rosewood is classified into two groups: sandalwood and pad auk wood. Rosewood furniture is made by tenons, not nails. There are three types of carving techniques: relief (brocade), penetrate carving and incised carving. There are also many so-called “Small Rosewood Items”, which include vases, bottles Block, and palace lambs. A kind of rosewood nine-dragon has unconventional and unique design; the pattern of nine dragons vividly carved on the back is really wonderful article excelling nature.
