The history of the woodcarving industry in Sanyi dates back to 1918, when a township local named Wu Chin-pao began making adornments at his home workshop from pieces of dead wood. His creations delighted a local Japanese resident and together with Wu, the two figured out a way to mass produce these pieces of wood art. In the early years, religious statues and handicrafts dominated the wood carving output in Sanyi. Recently, however, the industry has shifted to more personalized works of art with a steady stream of creative innovations on various themes. Visitors can view many of these amazing creations at the Sanyi Wood Sculpture Museum along with wood sculptures from around the world.
