The existence of Jepara carving art has been proven historically. At the time of Queen Kalinyamat in 16th century, carving art existed in Mantingan mosque, Jepara. At the beginning of the 20th century, Kartini pioneered the development of carving craft by giving training to the carving workers. In the new order (Orde Baru) period, there was a room in the presidential palace filled with Jepara carving art collection. In the reforming order period, carving craft was booming, and its quantity significantly increased. At this time, even though the carving craft was growing, yet its condition was considered fluctuating with ups and downs. The Regent Regulation No. 10 the Year 2014 about "The Provision of Carving Ornaments in Building and Other Buildings Owned by Local Government" is an effort to increase society's sense of love for the carving art. Culturally, carving art has become a source of economic life for workers, artisans, carving entrepreneurs, and Jepara society. Structurally, this regulation will produce more carving ornament products in the Jepara government buildings indicating the place as a carving city. The regulation has not been fully implemented by the government agencies in the Local Government Organizations, sub-district offices, village, and urban village offices, schools, and other agencies.
