About this Exhibit
While the Chinese tradition of carving jade and other stone materials stretches back thousands of years, the modern development of high-speed diamond drill bits has made the carving of harder materials like quartz and its varieties possible. From the collection of Francis Hueber, this exhibition will display 20th century Chinese carvings of agate, the agate most likely from Brazil, with fine detail and traditionally Chinese forms and motifs.
See the UDaily article on this exhibition for more information.
