Whether being in the temple or on the rocks, Buddha can make people contemplate the movement as they saw the Buddha. Those who see the Buddha also see their inner world, setting their hearts down, staying away from chaos, having no distracting thoughts and beholding the nature law from the within. Watching Buddha is one of the ways to cultivate Buddha. Buddha statue is not only a symbol, but also an emotional sustenance. Therefore, Buddha Statue Art is the combination of Buddhist wisdom, local customs and manual arts.
Stone carving art was introduced to southern Fujian, to Hui’an 1,600 years ago. It gradually developed to the southern style because of unique local customs there. Those carving stones hidden in the marketplace record the living traces, generation alternation of aesthetical tastes and spiritual world of local people. Thus, it has become a belief among the citizens. This belief has been passed on from generations to generations among citizens in Hui’an, becoming a landmark in their lives. The elaborate skill and pristine craftsmanship have been passed down by generations of Hui’an stone carving artists to this day.
As a new generation of Hui’an folk stone carvings, it’s not just inheriting the skills left by our ancestors, but also reconsider the possibilities between human beings and stone. New generation should expand the traditional stone carving art, which is no merely just the changes between the North and South fine art style, but also to combine the stone carvings into the contemporary life to achieve a new life. In 2011, Dingli Carving Group established a brand new art brand – “Samadhi - Stone Creation”, and proposed the concept of artistic life, which means “To be the enlightened Ones of modern life”. This is quite different from the traditional temples and ancestral hall built by our forefathers. With small statues of jade, stone carving works, the viewer can also closely experience the epiphany from the material to the heart. The Buddha says that it may cut out the confusion in the modern society so as calm down and gain wisdom.
Stone Carving Art combines nature and manual work. A small carved stone statue can also enlighten people and find their true selves, just like how people are enlightened when they are surrounded by morning dew, leaves, flowers and fruits hanging over the plants, between the wood and sands. Stone doesn't say anything yet the observer has already clamed himself down and hence he can see his Buddha nature. "Samadhi - Stone Creation" reborns from the tradition, awakes from the mundane life, just like the frondent linden flowers.
Invited by Wuxi Lingshan Buddhist Art Exhibition Hall, Samadhi – Stone Creation Studio brings more than 50 pieces of stone sculptures, holds a three-month touring exhibition in the Vatican Palace. After several deliberations, it was named as "Enlightenment & Cultivation – Touring Exhibition of Contemporary Buddhist Stone Carving Art".
Why was it named "Enlightenment & Cultivation"? One originates from the Lingshan Fair, where Buddha worshipped flowers and Kaya smiled. The Zen allusions passed from heart to heart, was enlightened in the secret of Buddha’s Smile. Second, Lingshan Vatican Palace is located on the riverside “Nianhua Bay”, which has its special geographical significance.
Improve skills, self-cultivation, exercise mind... We have been searching for our own Buddha in our hearts for years. In life, everything that smells, sees, experiences, feels and understands may be immature, superficial and non-essential...
Buddha is an enlightened man, and man is an unaware Buddha.It is waiting for us to discover and feel in our own nature.
We would like to present it sincerely with this exhibition, to offer a good starting point, to communicate with the viewers, to learn from each other.

The trees with ups and downs, the remote mountains prone, a lake,the meditation room sublimat from a white lotus , reflected in the water like mirror, clean and pure, as if time will still.The sunset shadow washing the sky, winding through meditation, meditation among people think. Tea and incense, the moon light waves, forget all things with own state of mind, empty heart like the sea.It is the night, the birds called the white lotus, morning light across the room again and again, again and again······
