Xianju Color Stone Mosaic
Text Size:A A A 2015-10-25

The unique Xianju Color Stone Mosaic is a new form originated from Xianju Stone Carving. By dexterously making use of the rich and natural colors of Xianju Stones, mosaic artists saw Xian Stones into 5-cm-thick stone slices and carve them into the models. After that, the models will be inlaid on a board to form all kinds of patterns, figures or animals. Upon polishing, the finished product boasts its elegancy, decency and vividness. However, the raw materials of Xianju Color Stone Mosaic are much cheaper than those of jewelry mosaic, etc. The artists of Xianju Color Stone Mosaic once made 3-meter-high and 2-meter-width color stone mosaic screens for the Great Hall of the People in Beijing and created the vivid images of historical innovators such as Xuanyuan, Luo Zu, Xia Yu, Zhang Heng, Ouye Zi, Lu Ban, Auntie Huangdao and Li Shizhen, which were highly praised by leaders of the CPC and the nation. Besides, the Xianju Color Stone Mosaic has been applied to small round mirrors, hanging screens, tea tables, boxes, etc.
