WUXIPENG   
The famous mansion is usually built in the center of the township. In Chaozhou, Guangdong, there is a 130-year-old house built in a remote alley. The name of this old house is called Huanggong. The slightly yellow gongs and the tidal courtyard buildings are not much different. When they approached, they found that the pillars and the roof were covered with fine gold lacquer wood carvings and stone carvings. These sculptures are vivid, and now they have not found the same level of skilled craftsmen, so they have become invaluable treasures, and their artistic value is better than most of the domestic engraving genres. Jinhuang Huanggong is a second hospital with a patio in the middle, excellent ventilation and lighting. The carvings of this old house are mainly wood carvings, mainly in the beams of the halls and corridors. On both sides of the gate, there are stone carvings with rich layers and hollowing out. These stone carvings are complex in content, with different expressions and movements, which were created by Chaozhou's top carving masters. Compared with stone carving, Chaozhou is more famous for its golden lacquer wood carving, which is basically impossible to copy. Jihuang Huanggong is the representative of Chaozhou gold lacquer wood carving craft. If you dont go to the Forbidden City in Beijing, you dont go to the West Palace in Hangzhou, you dont go to the West Lake in Hangzhou, and you dont look at the garden in Suzhou. It is definitely a pity. Chaozhou gold lacquer wood carvings are extremely complicated, each one has a large number of flowers, grasses, fishes or characters. Most of these sculptures are based on ancient Chinese folk tales or legends, and are integrated into painting and other art to express auspicious mood or The feelings of the house owner are all over the world, and they are amazing! Traffic: 3-way inner ring car.
