Dis­cover Spec­tac­u­lar Legacy of Zhe­jiang Stone­cut­ters

China Scenic - - Lens - By Qian Guo­dan Pho­to­graphs by Ye Wen­long, and as cred­ited

The prov­ince of Zhe­jiang is one of the strongholds of stone quar­ry­ing in China. Stone quar­ries have been op­er­a­tional here for nearly three mil­len­nia and this in­dus­try has left its marks ev­ery­where. The early quar­ries have long since be­come re­mark­able, ma­jes­tic sites – loom­ing, fore­bod­ing grot­toes, sheer rock faces and wa­ter pools, of in­fi­nite va­ri­ety and shapes, one more re­mark­able than the next.
