Located in Kaihau county, Root Palace is best known as the base of root carving culture and center for artists’ interaction worldwide. Over 3 years, the “Belt & Road" International Root Carving Cultural Exchange Week provides a platform for artists to demonstrate and showcase their art and skills. In 2019, 14 international artists from countries of Asia, Europe and Africa were invited. With diverse cultural backgrounds, various artistic styles and unique elements were presented to the audience. Both international and domestic artists joined the collaborative project, sharing their homeland symbols on the one root. During the process, invited artists get to know each other and form a tight bond. This film documented the working process, sharing the artists’ insights toward root carving, the valuable friendship and the beauty of roots.
