The earliest artwork of the boxwood carving found today is Yuan Dynasty “Statue of Li Tieguai” collected by the Palace Museum in Beijing. The beginning of the art can even track back to Song Dynasty. During Ming and Qing dynasties, boxwood carvings became a popular folk art and formed an independent artistic style. The cradle of boxwood carvings is in Wenzhou and Yueqing in Zhejiang province. Most of contents of the carving subjects are Chinese folk myths and legends figures. In June 2006, the boxwood carving was included in the first batch of the national intangible cultural heritage.
