Fruit Pit Carving is a kind of traditional Chinese folk miniature carving art. It is a kind of handicraft which carves various artistic images on olive pit, peach pit or walnut pit. Guangfu is the birthplace of modern fruit pit carving. Suzhou’s fruit pit carving skill is exquisite in craftsmanship and style. It is famous for its “fine, elegant and ingenious”.
