The Huishan clay figurine has a recorded history of 400 years.

The invention of Huishan clay figurines is inseparable from its geographical conditions. About one meter from the ground at the foot of the northeastern slope of HuishanMountain, there is black clay that is delicate and soft thus quite suitable for kneading. The clay is excellent for the craftsmen that create the smooth, colorful and vivid figurines as well as the lovable and well-known “Da A Fu”, which represents hard-working spirit, kindness, happiness and helpful personality.

The Huishan clay figurines can be divided into two kinds. One is traditional clay figure, and the other is made of plastering products. With delicate design, vivid appearance and bright color, they had won great popularity among visitors in Wuxi.
