Stone carving has a long history:
Stone carved Chinese watch is a traditional building of the Chinese nation, with a long history.
According to legend, Huabiao not only has the function of road signs, but also passers-by messages, which appeared in the Yao and Shun times of primitive society. At that time, people set up a wooden column on the main road to identify roads and signs. Later, mailboxes and heritages also used it as a sign. Its name was "Huamu" or "Watchwood", later collectively known as "Huamu", because the ancient "Huamu" was similar to the sound of "Huabiao", so it slowly became "Huabiao".
The role of stone carvings in Huabiao:
There are many different opinions about the role of stone carvings in Chinese history. There are roughly three kinds.
It is generally believed that Huabiao, also known as Hengbiao and Bianmu, is a pillar used for Memorial and marking in ancient buildings. Huabiao originated from an ancient art of erecting. It is said that in the Yao and Shun times, people erected wooden pillars on the main road of traffic as a sign of direction, which is the rudiment of Huabiao.
Another view is that Huabiao originated from the totem symbols of ancient tribes. There is a beast on the top of Huabiao, like a dog but not a dog. It is called "Yao". Folk legend says that this kind of monster is hopeful.
Another theory holds that the ancient name of Huabiao was "libel wood". Legend has it that Yao and Shun set up wooden pillars on the main road of traffic and the court for the sake of receiving admonitions, so that people could write admonitions on them. That is to encourage people to put forward their opinions.
