Shen Shaoan, a famous lacquer artist, analyzed the ancient door plaques during his lacquer career. Why the inner wood had decayed, while the surface of the raw lacquer coated with Xia cloth (Ji Ma cloth) was intact. Therefore, on the basis of the traditional "pinch tyre" technology, the technology of bodiless decoration has been created. He used clay to sculpt the embryo of Buddha statue, then used Xia cloth and raw lacquer to cover many layers. After shade-dried lacquer, he poured out the dissolved mud and left a lacquer cloth tire. After many routes of graying, rubbing and painting, and then applying colors on the surface, he completed a light, solid and beautiful bodiless Buddha statue.

During the Daoguang period (1821-1850), Fuzhou, as a "five-port trading" port, increased overseas sales of bodiless lacquerware, which led to the emergence of Western-style crafts suitable for the aesthetic habits of Europeans and Americans: cigarettes, wine sets, coffee cups, vases, etc., and won the Gold Prize at the Paris International Expo.
