As the Spring Festival of the Year of the Dragon approaches, workers in a wood carving factory work diligently to fulfill orders in Panshan village, Jinjiang, Fujian province. The workers meticulously craft exquisite temple wood carvings, such as dragon pillars and heads.

Panshan's wood carving, characterized by temple sculptures, boasts a long history and exquisite craftsmanship. Its products are exported to Southeast Asian countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines.

In 2021, Quanzhou wood carving, with Panshan's temple wood carving as a representative, made it to the fifth batch of the national intangible cultural heritage list.
