An online show recently mounted by the China Cultural Center in Brussels and the Shanghai Zhuyun Art Museum in Jiading sheds light on a gem of China's bamboo culture –Jiading bamboo carving from East China's Shanghai.

A roster of ingenious works, from brush pots and incense tubes to wrist rests and various sculptures for table ornamentation, all created during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), are on view at the center's website, as well as social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

Among the regional bamboo carving schools in China, Jiading bamboo carving enjoys great renown for its long history dating back more than 400 years and a vast array of works that demand exquisite carving techniques.

In 2006, Jiading bamboo carving was listed among the first batch of national intangible cultural heritages by the State Council.
