Bamboo in China

Arts, Crafts and a Cultural History

Photographs by: Pan Jialai and He Hongbing / Translated by: Yawtsong Lee
Bamboo has been used for thousands of years in China. With its many tributes and strengths, bamboo was blended into China's Confucian, Buddhist and Taoist thinking to give birth to a uniquely Chinese cultural phenomenon that has since spread far and wide. This beautifully illustrated book presents a vivid history of bamboo in China, including its many uses in daily life—from musical instruments to architecture, hydraulic engineering to military applications.
