Abstract

As a visual art form, shaping the image is the primary focus of Dazu stone carvings. Its flower and bird patterns were influenced by the regional economy, ideological culture, and Song Dynasty painting. The beauty of flower and bird patterns originates from the composition structure, the interplay between virtuality and reality, the rhythm, and the artist's profound understanding of the theme of artistic expression. Choosing the appropriate angle of expression in concrete shapes, having a sense of personalized decorative form, and being rich in the sense of changing rhythm are the fundamental elements of creating flower and bird theme art. It showcases unique folk realism, intriguing exaggeration, and versatile decorative beauty. The flower and bird patterns can create an obscure atmosphere and convey something that is not easily expressed, in order to capture the essence of the photo. This study can serve as a reference for the development and application of traditional flower and bird ornamentation in modern times.
