The carving process of the monument is mainly relief carving, round carving, line carving, openwork, etc. The main carving contents on the front are: the relief shape of the top of the monument is generally dominated by flowers and plants, and the center of the ridge of the archway is carved. The dragon and phoenix are in relief on the top, and the heads of the dragon and the phoenix are entwined with the body in the opposite direction. The lower part of the monument usually has 8 immortals crossing the sea in relief carvings, as well as relief carvings on dragon columns, as well as carvings of the characters for blessing and longevity. , auspicious cloud line carving, stone lion round carving, etc., such a relief sculpture is particularly huge.

The stele stone is mainly made of granite. The granite has high hardness and anti-oxidation. The stele is built outdoors. The granite is not easy to be weathered and deteriorated. The common granite for stele is: G654 sesame black, G603 sesame White, sesame gray, Shanxi black, Indian red, British brown, white marble, etc. Different types of stone are used, and the cost of making tombstones is also different. Domestic stones are relatively cheap. Except for Shanxi black, imported stones are more expensive. Because the shape of the stele square is relatively huge, and the materials used are relatively large, so creating a stele square can be called a luxury tombstone.

The stele square has a messy shape and is composed of multiple pieces of stone. During the Ming and Qing Dynasties, the manufacture of the stele square was gradually built by craftsmen with skills and experience. When it comes to manufacturing, the planning drawing will be drawn first, and then the factory will place an order for production according to the planning drawing. In this way, the manufacturing process is precise, the shape and size are controlled in place, and the stone will not be wasted and the output will be increased!

Each monument contains rich inner and symbolic meanings, and these inner and symbols are mainly expressed by various patterns and patterns carved on the monument. , exaggerated, romantic, free carving method, simple and simple figures, animals, plant shapes.
