Sanyi Township in Miaoli County is home to world famous woodcarvings. In the 1920s, the area mostly carved natural rare woods. 1970s was the golden peak for Sanyi as crafts coming out of the area are renowned both domestically and worldwide. The crafts mostly sold overseas. Due to the energy crisis in 1980s, the town was also affected. However this only led to the artists in the area rethinking about how to upgrade these from "merchandises" into "artworks". The woodcarving museum was founded in 1995 and the whole island's woodcarving artists gathered here, exchanging ideas and inspirations off each other, forming a unique town with woodcarving as its main attraction.
