Taiwanese sculptor Hung Fu-shou looks out of a window in Taizhou, east China's Jiangsu Province, Dec. 9, 2012. Born in 1950 in Penghu, southeast China's Taiwan, Hung started to learn coral carving at the age of 17. In the early 1990s, he left for the Chinese mainland for better business opportunity and encountered with crystal carving for the first time. Hung came across the Buddhist sculptures and murals within the Mogao Grottoes in a 1996 trip to northwest China's Gansu, and drew inspiration from the impressiveness of the cultural wonder. He found crystal an ideal material for Buddhist sculptures which are often associated with peacefulness and purity. Hung's crystal Buddhist sculptures have won awards in China many times while one of his works has become a collection of the Guimet Museum in France. His achievements made him one of the best sculptors in crystal carvings related with Tibetan Buddhism. Hung and his wife now run their own company, Qingshan Crystal Sculpture Co., Ltd., in Taizhou. Their products are sold to global markets. (Xinhua/Xue Dongmei)
