Shell carving, a cultural heritage originating from Dalian in Liaoning province, is rejuvenating the craft by incorporating modern artistic techniques.

In order to better protect and preserve the intangible cultural heritage, the Xinzhaizi community of Dalian's Ganjingzi district established an art gallery with Jin Ashan, a master of Chinese arts and crafts as well as a representational successor of shell carving

It is open to the public free of charge, and invites artists from various areas to visit, participate through exchanges and carry out training activities.
