Painted Drawings and Patterns Painting over wood was primarily a means of protection, but the covering of wooden surfaces with brightly coloured drawings and patterns was the decorative technique most characteristic of Chinese building.It became widely used, too, for inland mosques, cases in point being the Niujie Mosque in Beijing and the Huajuexiang Mosque in Xi'an.The surfaces under the eaves of the great hall were painted with a wide variety of forms, going far beyond what was traditional.The technique was applied not only to beams, square pillars and cellings, but also to the columns, the rear mihrab hall and the mihrab itself, often reaching such perfection that many an example was widely acclaimed.Gold leaf was also applied in abundance, and in Xinjiang decorative plasterwork is often to be seed in combination.There were regional differences, with dark green being the colour often used in northern China.Typical of southwestern China on the other hand is the wide variety of colour used.
Carving Carving was a popular decorative technique and great attention was paid to it in Islamic buildings.Wood carving was applied to beam ends, square pillars, dougong brackets, the rnihrab as well as to partition doors and windows.Its style depended on the particular position of the object to be carved, intaglio, bas-relief and lineat carving being the techniques frequently employed.In Xinjiang, it was the column caps, the colomns theruselves and latticed windows that were carved, the columns in some mosques being completely covered with splendid patterns that were all different.
