China is home to some of the finest carvers.  This country has a long history in this sculptural art form. Xiang Duan is an amazing hard stone and wood carver. There is nothing this woman can't do.

She can turn gemstones and even ordinary river stone into works of art. She also creates much larger pieces - intricate carvings on a log! Shown here are some mesmerizing videos of her in action!

Xiang Duan uses power tools and a small stream of  water for lubrication and to keep things cool. It makes me a little queasy to watch her wield sharp tools so close to her unprotected hands. But then she is very deft and possesses an uncanny talent being able to work in 3D!
