It was a coincidence that Meng Qingyuan went to see an exhibition of relief art at the time he became interested in engraving. He then began his own attempts to learn how to carve on wood. After multiple experiments and cuts to his hands, he learnt the necessary carving skills on his own.
He spent the majority of his income buying books on engraving art and visited the Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an and Longmen Grottoes in Luoyang to study art techniques.
