Woodcarving in Dongyang

This short piece offers a glimpse into the daily life of a woodcarving workshop in Dongyang, capital of the long-established craft of woodcarving in China, whose masterpieces are resplendently displayed in the extensive woodcarving museum and trading center in Dongyang. We watch the master craftsman and his apprentices and craftsmen as they work, and chat with them about their lives and future expectations. We discover their feelings of an uncertain future for this incredible craft, maybe an unavoidable consequence of modern life…
