Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/3

In Yunnan, there are many master jewels and jade carvers. They carved the jades, mainly from Myanmar, into ring decorations, bracelet, necklace, and other things in the form of chicken heart, horse eye, silver ingot (used as money in ancient China), lantern and flowers. They also carved the jades into eight treasure (ba bao) pieces symbolizing happiness (Fu in Chinese), wealth (lu), longevity (shou), auspiciousness (xi). They carve 9 Buddhist statues symbolizing longevity and wealth. They also carve some large-sized things, such as celery cabbages, black lions, white elephant and galloping horses.
